These are basically fooling around. Scraps from the scraps. The first two are off size leftover sections that I had to surround somehow. Came up with these. Like I said just fooling around and experimenting.
The last two pictures show some plant stands for the deck. I hate seeing plants sitting on nice decks rotting the wood underneath. Had some old oak and used it up.
Once again, Thanks for looking….................

I like the crossover of the wood, it reminds me of those japanese doors minus the paper. Good job

Looks like I am, but most will be gifts I’m sure. I make things, I don’t sell them. Sometimes, rarely, someone will buy something from me or I’ll trade for something, but I concentrate on ideas and production and really not much at all on sales. Does that sound strange? It works for me. Not very well, but I’m too reclusive to deal with sales and the time it takes to promote oneself. I’m feeling my mortality and I’ve too many things to make first. Just having fun doing what I’ve only been able to think about till now.

And I really like the Oriental influence on the 2nd one.
