These look great! Do the center panels pivot on the dowels?

Fantastic collection. Love the mitered corners. The one with one short, one medium, and one long keys is a nice extra design touch. Gives it a kittle more then just even keys would.

Keep up the greeat work.

Great work. I especially like the weather station. I couldn’t remember seeing your work before so I took a look at your gallery. Lots of beautiful unique things.

I like the design for the display… Gives me ideas for my own projects.
