This was for a competition in 2005. I sketched it up in front of the fire on cool winter evening. It is made from Radata pine and is probably the most creative thing I have ever come up with. The top section is dovetailed and the rest is screwed and glued. The timber has a blond stain to keep it from going the horrible yellow pine tends to go. It is for sale in our local gallery….and yes I won first prize in the pine section of the 2005 Kawerau woodskills …bla bla
