Great job. Love the inlay and marquetry accents.
Great design.

Nicest closet insert I’ve seen. Great craftsmanship on that.

What was the name of that Philippine president that had like a thousand pairs of shoes? Maybe she could commission you to do a bunch of these. Nice work!

Great job…my wife could use one of those, but then a wine rack does sound good too.

Haha! Imelda Marcos was her name. I’ll bet she’d have kept you busy for a lifetime. Didn’t she die a few years ago?

thats nice! Theres an alcove in my moms walk in closet right behind the door that would be perfect for something like this. Not that she has a lot of shoes or anything….rolls eyes
