Thank you all. All three of my pieces are at the highlight gallery in mendocino until may 31st. I wish you guys could see it up close. The Maple top is incredible, and the best side is the bottom. Pictures help out my shoulder gap immensely. Its almost like they don’t exist.

Very nice Tom, looks light and airy (that may be redundant). I’m not familiar with “silver” maple, would that be the same as your local “big leaf” maple??

It was sold to me as maple, but I’ve been thinking it is either Big leaf or silver. I’ve been leaning towards silver but it is hard to really no.

Very light and graceful. I like the design of the shelf slats.

Good design. I like the legs and the shelf slats. I also like the name. You speak Tagalog?

Thank you! I don’t speak Tagalog. The grain of the big leaf maple reminded me of a typhoon. And the chaski I had on it in my class’s show came from my great grandmother who lived in the Philippines. So I connected the dots and came up with bagyo as the name.
