Super job. Looks great. I did something like this for a few shop cabinet doors years ago but not this wild.

That’s a crazy useful use of useful and crazy wood! Love it! It’s about time I’ve seen this! I’ve wanted to do this….just afraid it would take too much time. How much time is invested? Saving to favorites!!

Not really sure on the time. I would work on it here and there. The glueing was a pain in the rear, but I will do another for sure.

Did you use a general uniform width or thickness as you were cutting or glueing up?

I like it and the idea behind it :) I also like the fact that you shaped the legs, top and shelf instead of leaving them linear. It’s certainly not for every decor, but it’s quirky and fun. Nice work!

Great job! You put a lot of work into this. You basically had to make your own wood!
