simply beautiful, save this one for the WDC. I think you are onto something, keep going. Western-Asian-Mountain-Country-Rustic all rolled into one. Very original, and it shows off your abilities to carve well.

Dennis, I'm absolutely gobsmacked! This is a true masterpiece of work.

At every level it works - the selection and combination of wood, the design, color and finish, the choice of joinery, the detail yet the overall impact, and the originality.

I agree with all of the remarks above and can only add that you have my complete admiration and respect for your artistic craftsmanship.

I'll come back and look at this many times. By the way - forget about kitchens.

Hi Dennis;
--'Wood Art' at its best….WOW!!!

I was just sitting and staring into the cabinet box, or might I say….dreaming within your dream! Looks like your on a roll also, and finding your own niche.

GODSPEED,
Frank

This is spectacular Dennis. There is a lot going on but none of it is 'crowded' for lack of a better phrase. I wish I could see this in person…

Dennis -

this just popped up on shuffle . . . it's even better the second time around! I know I already commented on this beautiful piece, however, I felt compelled to comment again. Absolutely spectacular! I really like this piece.
