This piece is 46 inches long, and a bit over 8 wide, 2 inch thick stock. It can be permanently be mounted as a floating shelf by anchoring dowel rods into the studs of the wall. I am trying to find a local welder to fabricate some hidden bracket action that could screw over drywall, but have yet to find the guy(or girl) to make them.
I am a visual artist and woodworker creating functional and character filled furniture and accessories using the many techniques I have accumulated over the years. I received my BFA in 1998 and have since done fine art, finish carpentry, cabinet installation, and faux finishing. I have been doing original furniture design and custom woodwork since 2010.
My goal and purpose is to combine these elements and skills to make functional beautiful furniture that is inviting as well as aesthetically pleasing.

This technique is still fairly new to me, but I am starting to get the hang of it, the dovetail is a time consuming joint to cut custom with traditional hand tools, but the strength of the resulting glued up joint is undeniable. A piece like this will last for generations if well cared for. Sealed with indoor oil based polyurethane. 46.5x12x18" high.
