Here is my first post of projects. Sorry about the photos the lighting isn’t great in the house. Anyhow this piece is made from maple and is finished with lacquer. The art is illuminated with warm led lights which gives the sunrise effect. Frosted glass and mortise and tenon construction.

Beautifully done. I love the simple and modern lines. Very elegant and also practical for displaying one’s treasures. I could use something like this to display my numerous artifacts.

I really like the warm LED lights and the halogen lights for underneath. Can you show the halogens illuminating something under them?

When can you deliver this? :)

Hello mmh unfortunately I am in Canada and the shipping costs might be insane cause it probably weighs 200 – 300 pounds:) But thanks for your interest in the piece.

This is a beautiful piece. A lot of times I have to tell the story about a piece but this one has it designed right in. The finish looks amazing and I love the lights. Thank you for showing it!
