Another “Work of Heart” benefitting the Memphis Child Advocacy Center.

This one is made of silver maple. The base is Osage Orange and is just heavy enough to support this. I tried to make this feel very thin and in many spots it is super thin, in the 1/32” range.

I always start with an angle grinder and totally get covered in wood chips. This year, I decided to be more fluid and not a leaf to see how this one sells. This goes into a silent auction and all proceeds goes to the charity.

I’d love to get your opinions on this one. The size is 34×20 x 6 inches.
