Alright Fellow Lumberjocks,

you might say “what have you been working on?” ..... here it is

a massive 90” (wide) 80” (tall) x 16”(top) x 24”(bottom)
all true mortise and tenon joinery with through pegs
the floating panels are hand carved from one solid piece of walnut,with the exception of the face panel (top)
sporting the triple curved frame and panel
the Ellipse’s have hinged frames that open like a door to receive the shown painting (chosen by client )
this was done so she could change this element out as her mood hit}
i also included individually controlled 3 stage dim-able reading lighting by reaching through the weave and accessing a touch switch
there is also a woven frame and panel visible from pillow looking toward the ceiling that is not shown

thanks for stopping by [(:{>

Excellent, oicurn ! The ellipses are genius. There’s a lot of effort in that lattice work.

This really turned out nicely. It will be the center of attention in that room.
