Well, this would do to read Tarot from or whatever. I just finished this although I drew it about a year ago … I’ve been doing other stuff.
It’s made from a piece of silver birch I got from a local tree, it was a huge limb that had to come off.
The inlay is about 4 or 5mm thick, plum and recycled mahogany.
I had done a 3 legged table and one with 4 legs, so it seemed 5 was the next step. I couldn’t find any 5-legged ones online so I guess it’s quite unusual.
As usual I went to great lengths to pin, peg and ‘butterfly’ all the pieces (I hate to rely on glue solely).
The logo is the first hexagram from the I Ching … “creative power” .. my caligraphy.
I’ve already started cutting wood for my next long term project, I have been given some Ash from local tree and it should be enough for a small chinese style cabinet.
…and enough silver birch drying for a couple of chairs but…. no room in the house for more furniture as yet.
