Yin to Yang and Yang to Yin, Two energies causing everything to happen: just as things expand and contract, and temperature changes from hot to cold.

I wanted the table to look like a figure holding up the display.

Mid section being the body and legs, this being the Yin aspect of the project ”Yin would be dark, passive, downward Etc.”

The top section being the face (round maple burl piece) arms and table top ,This would be the Yang part of the project ”Yang would be bright, active, upward, hot, expanding, and strong”.

It’s made out of Quilted Maple ,Red Maple for the table top ,Walnut & Maple burl =inner circle.

Excellent concept! Very graceful, and fitting for the display. I’m curious also about the finish you chose. Could you fill us in on that?

Keep this stuff coming—you are humbling me!
