March 2003 A creative display shelf made from The Big Oak Tree.
In making the display shelf I tried to allow the main trunk (originally a limb) to set the pattern for the branches that hold the shelves. The main trunk has a smooth surface yet has an interesting irregularity to its shape. All of the wood that can be seen on the display shelf is from the Old Oak Tree, although there is some plywood hidden within.

The base and the branches with the shelves are all created from small pieces that were band sawed (mostly quartersawn) from parts of the tree. These were dried to a moisture content of about 10 percent. Stacking the small pieces near a heating duct in the guest bedroom helped to bring the drying time down to only 6 months. Pieces for the base were then glued together and chain sawed, chiseled, filed, and sanded to the final shape. The shelf lighting system is LEDs which are low voltage and give off no heat.
Dec. 2002 An attractive music box.
