    Maple mirror/coat rack

    Here's another coat rack in Maple. I didn't think about it until Rob mentioned it in my other thread, but I'm making a few of these to sale. When the wife saw this one she said that this one is hers. My poor picture taking ability doesn't do this wood justice. It has a lot of curl and burl, and the grain colors are really nice. It's also from a log I cut a couple of years ago.

    I'm right there with ya on the photo skills (or lack thereof). The piece is beautiful and those of us that work with this stuff can certainly "see" that. I really need to up my picture taking ability too. I think it would help us all out to be able to do well in that area, or know someone who is good at it .

    Very nice work, John. I can see why your wife put her dibs on this one.

    I agree with your wife; that mirror is really nice.
    The mirror is the type of thing that has almost universal appeal. They should sell very well and I hope that they really do.

    Enjoy,
