This is the first piece I've made that was inspired by just one special board. I remember my sawyer saying, "Don't know what I'm gonna do with this one. It bowed really bad on the crotch end when it was drying." It took me about 3 seconds to realize exactly what I was gonna make with that unique board. I dig the look of swept legs, and mother nature had done half the work in this case.
The rest of the design was mostly just in my head from Arts and Crafts bookcases I've admired.
