I had some difficulty getting a photo of this bench. Since it is black, the details tend to disappear. The style is a little different than I have done for this piece in the past, but I think it turned out kind of nice. I am trying to concentrate more on the overall design of the decoration than on technically perfect painting. The idea for this came to me in a dream. I decided not to cover the whole piece in leaves, but just do a couple selected areas. The design seemed to need the black spaces.

A friend of mine asked me if I could make him a small shelf in the shape of the Chevrolet Bow Tie Logo and this is what I came up with for him. He said he would paint it if I made it, so it is shown here unpainted. It is just big enough for him to put a few Matchbox cars on the level areas. I had fun making it for him, but the angles to cut the wood were really difficult to figure out. He wants me to make a few more things for him and I will post them when I have them completd.
