  12. Asian-style Driftwood Shelves

    We found this large section of root mostly buried by sand on a beach on the gulf coast of Florida. It seems similar in style to roots I have seen exposed near the water's edge on Slash Pine. Though I was surprised by how dense and heavy the root is. The shelves were initially cut during my...

    I set about making another driftwood bandsaw box, after designing and making the one in the previous post, it had a number of steps to complete it.
