My wife wanted a place for her laptop that stays by her chair in the great room. The entire thing is cherry and accented with bloodwood strips. The weave strips are also cherry. Satin poly.

Yep, this really nifty. I like the bloodwood accents. What was you inspiration for the ‘basket’ approach?

Very pretty. How thick are the slats? Must have taken some patience to cut them!

Yea, good idea Os. Maybe a double decker so the laptop and magazines can be in the same rack.
