    Christmas tree..a little different

    I made this several of years ago as a craft display fixture but it has since been re purposed as a kinetic holiday tree. Made of Wenge strips and Maple mini pegs in the accordion style of old fashioned kiddie gates and mug racks, it hangs over the fireplace, and as the heat rises the ornaments dance and gently tap the wall. It has become a family tradition to hang this tree when we put up the real one.

    Very cool, Ted. I also really like the hooks you're using for the ornaments.
