Boxed Comparisons is a sculptural wall cabinet in Purple Heart and Match Poplar. It was partly inspired by the work of the Japanese American woodworker, Po Shun Leong. The front is also a door that opens onto three shallow shelves for storing things. It measures 25” high x 16” wide x 5.5” deep. It is a good way to recycle off cuts and practice band saw skills!

I’m usually not into the more modern abstract stuff, but I really like your interpretation. I mean I really like it.
