This is my first piece of furniture. It’s an elaboration of something that my wife and I saw in a restaurant gift shop. Their piece was an unimaginative, heart-shaped, oak cutout. I couldn’t help but to take the opportunity to personalize the simple piece. My wife and I each wear Claddagh rings in an Irish tradition. Their collective symbols stand for friendship, loyalty, and love- represented by hands, a crown, and heart. I used this inspiration for the central detail, and completed the theme by cutting the base into a Celtic trinity knot. Walnut with a tung oil finish.
