I created this piece from some slab stock of acacia cedar I had bought several years ago. The wood is extremely figured, so I've tended to use it sparingly. I felt like making another elongated form so, knowing I could get a nice two color effect with the acacia, it seemed like a good time to use some of this precious wood stock. This is another highly elongated form. The base is disproportionately small ... enhancing the impact of the long overhangs. I wouldn't say that this is a functional item ... but, it's a great display piece, especially in an elevated location.
