Technically this is not a finished product but my current project has several “new to me” aspects and they are really quite separate. This is one of them , finished.
Many of us here have made lots of wood out of trees, but how many of us have made a tree out of wood? ( or even wanted to, I guess) This all came into being when I was trying to come up with the next variation on my mitered, grain matched box to follow Oops! (see my projects) I started sketching thoughts and the idea of a tree as support for a cabinet kept showing up under my pencil. What you see here is the result of a truly inordinate number of highly enjoyable hours spent in the shop. The last photo is the “set of plans” for the new project ”A Little Cabinetree” soon to be appearing here. I was going to do a blog on the how to’s of the job after I posted it, but I decided to follow Dennis Zongker’s lead and do the blog first and then post the project. ( I hope you don’t mind Dennis, it is the sincerest form of flattery.)
