Folksy Friday - Wooden Treasures

My brother, Gary, is a genius when it comes to wood.  Gary's career and appreciation of furniture began as an apprentice working for a traditional craftsman in Windsor.  His work is inspired by the glamorous yet functional designs from the 'Art Deco' period between the wars.  He now creates bespoke pieces like this one.

This Friday Folksy theme is WOOD for all those other amazing crafters out there.

    I thank you Little Daydreamer, for thinking my humble work is worth adding to your collection. (It's the chair).

    I thank you, Little Daydreamer, for thinking my humble chair is worth adding to your collection! I DO like the wooden box! Oh, and the bed, the heart mirror...
