Obviously, i do not dabble in photography!! -i tried to get a focused picture -i swear, i’m not just trying to hide all the shims and wood-glue-dust-filler.
I made these for owner (for the shop) that was kind enough to take some of my pieces on commission in Covington.
She has yet to e-mail back about them, so, i guess they are up for grabs for now

It is a crepe myrtle forest with …top-down…
oak, persimmon, oak, walnut, cedar, box elder, cherry, box elder, & box elder/walnut leaf shelves!

-and, yes, i will level the skewers & dowels when it is at it’s final destination (it has to be able to fit through the door)

Wow! I really enjoy looking at this piece, really organic, just right placement of the shelves.
