With spring around the corner , I find new inspiration in the nature that surounds my studio in the Laurel Highlands. Currently I am working on 3 jewelry cabinets that seem to have evolved much from this inspiration , and I await their finalization to showcase them...... Some of the most complex work I will have completed to date. Look for their debut in the near future. On another note the studio is growing with the warm weather with skylight and roofed wood/machine storage areas being added to the front and back. This should make life a little easier . So far the concrete and block retaining walls have been completed . The roof awaits, but at least the mud is no more. Here are two of the chests in various stages.
