This is quite an interesting piece of furniture! Do you have any more pictures of it you can share with us? A lot of us prefer and love to see more than one photo, especially of something like this that has other curves and details we’d miss from just one photo.

Welcome to LumberJocks! Looking forward to seeing more of your work!
