This is an art easel with a wendall castle look. This particular easel is made of Afromosia and done with bent laminations. Thanks French.

This looks like a very interesting piece made with a very interesting wood. From what I can see, it looks very well done.

However, I really yearn to see this better with some additional pictures that are taken closer up. I’d love to see or read how the wood is joined together. I’d like a close up that captured the grain of the wood.

To make the bends, did you steam the wood or laminate (or something else)?

Very nice. I agree with Rich, it would be nice to see close-ups. I’ve never heard of Afromosia. Love the design.

Either way – Very Nice!
