What an interesting design! Would love to see a pix of the glue-up before you started the shaping/carving.

Thanks!

I guess my “left brain” thinking makes it difficult for me to imagine conceiving something like this.

What an interest design concept . . . a bit weird, but beautiful nevertheless! How did you come up with the idea, Paul? I guess the multi-layer part is plywood and the dark “handle” is walnut, but what are the other, especially the inner parts? What degree angle did you use for the slats? And how did you hollow out the inside cavity? Boy, oh boy, if that purse doesn’t start a conversation, nothing will! Fantastic, Paul!

” . . . very easy”? That’s easy for you to say, but duh, I don’t get it!

Wow, that is impressive and very creative. It reminds me of some sort of sea creature that crawled up on land and dried out. You’ve got some interesting design elements, curves, and grain direction going on here.

Nice work and thanks for sharing it with us Paul!

You have to be completely nuts to even think of this, let alone make it.
Stunning!!!
