As mentioned in my “Frank Lloyd Wright Print Stand” project, this is the Asian version. Actually this is the third, with the second being about this size and used some other ray flecks, but used the mitered corners.
About the only dimensions used from the Wright stand is that the table and leg height are the same size. I was able to put together a fair amount of “Ray Flecked” stock for the frame and it really brings the wood to life. As you move about, the flecks flash off and on, and the serpentine spindles seem to change shape. If I was into “video” I could probably show this better, but I already have too many projects ongoing.
Finish is Golden Oak, quickly wiped off and shellac with as touch of medium brown tone added. The frame and spindles are mortise and tenon.
Currently being used to display some “David Bumbeck” prints. David was a High School classmate, and was kind enough to sign several of his early prints for us.
