A Carved Cherry Coat Rack and a new Cherry Dining Table with Glass Top

Well, my carved “Taffy” theme continues. I just completed a commission for a couple in Texas, for a wall hung coat rack in carved and painted cherry, that takes the carved taffy concept of my mirror frames, tables and lamps in a more sculptural direction. It has a waterproof top coat, 48″ long and mounts on the wall with two hidden clips on the back. This coat rack replaces a more typical Shaker style coat rack they had, which was basically a rectangular board with wooden pegs sticking out of it.
I also recently completed a new dining table design, in cherry with a tinted glass top. The top is 1/2″ thick x 48″ diameter with a polished edge and tempered. Is was a custom commission for a home on the waterfront in South Burlington, Vermont.
Both of these pieces are made of FSC certified sustainably harvested cherry.
Here are some shots (click them to enlarge):

    Really cool coat rack. It stands on its own as art. Is it one solid piece of cherry or is there a joint somewhere in it? It would have had to be a massive piece of cherry but I can't see where it is joined either.

    Thanks Rob. It is made from two pieces of 3" thick cherry, joined in the center of the two large curves in the middle. Both pieces of cherry came from the same board, which was about 9" wide.
