From the Shop

"Leaping Box" is hot off the work bench, but with no particular purpose in mind. It is maple with mahogany. The legs were formed by hand. I plan to do some more modern styled furniture and this is the direction I want to go. I actually found the wood at Home Depot digging through the stacks. The picture clearly shows the figure in the grain, but doesn't quite do it justice. There is a fancy french word for this kind grain and its ribboney effect - chatoyance.
