Wall curio shelf, 33” X 16” X 7 1/2”. Made of red elm that I harvested and cut into lumber with a chain saw mill. The inspiration for this cabinet was the stained glass which I was told came from a Frank Lloyd Wright design. This was the first open shelf design that I have done and incorporates hexagonal posts between the shelves. The back is a three piece frame and panel construction with solids elsewhere. Finish is tinted Watco oil with paste wax blended into the finish.

Very nicely designed and constructed! I recognized the stain glass design as similar to ones I’ve seen attributed to FLW—did you do the stain glass?
