Fantasy book shelf

Manzanita legs, juniper shelves, and hours of inlay work. 25 different turquoise inlays over all.
Joining all this, to function as a level book shelf, felt more like sculpting instead of assembling.
Difficult but rewarding.

I’d call it creativity and unique. I like your organicity combined with structure, nice work sir!

There’s a reason it felt like sculpting. And it is a very nice sculpture!

looks awesome, that is a great use of natural limbs and flow. What did you use to glue in the turquoise?

Great work Bradley. The more I looked at it , the more I appreciated the beauty of the piece. Checked out your previous projects and was equally impressed. Well done. Keep up the fine, imaginative work.
