Oh I love the designs. They really came out nice. Is it your design and do you share your patterns?

Honestly I have always loved the Dr Suess and Alice in Wonderland style furniture and there are some similar designs out there but these are just a result of some sketches I made. The end result is not always identical to the initial sketch but it has the basic design concept I was looking for.

Yes I used a Laguna band saw. I also planed most of the rough lumber as well.

Yes they are bandsaw boxes that measure approximately 12” tall x 6” wide x 4”deep.

Tommy, all of these pieces are so beautiful and nicely done. They are so whimsical and are wonderful eye catchers. They display a lot of nice details and craftsmanship.
