Yew Shoe Rack

This is a wany edged shoe rack made of Yew. You can see the starting material in one of the photos. It was chosen becuase of its unusual grain pattern rather than in spite of it. The twisting grain, knots and hollows made it a difficult bit of wood to work on.

I made a sander thicknesser and disc sander that run off my lathe to help me build this. You can see more about them on my other posts.
