Hi everybody;
This is my first posting of a project that I did last year. The body was made from black walnut, and the legs were made from curly maple. Sanded to 600, and finished with many coats of Tung oil.
Over all dimensions: 15”w X 5”d X 4” h. This project was inspired by “Home is where the Hearth is” by Triumph1 a fellow Lumber jock, whose work I admire greatly.
Thanks for looking.

Trying to get my head around this piece, it’s is intricate visually, I have no idea whats it for serving? or what size is it?
It has been very well made for sure & has a lovely design element to it with a nice blend of timber

I really like this piece. I would use it as a valet type thing for rings, change, and other pockety things to sit on my dresser. Love the form.
