This was a fairly formal piece of furniture In his previous life, but no longer. Elmer was a project that evolved and evolved with each layer. I began with no plan and by the end, I was smitten and Elmer had won my heart. Probably one of my most favorite pieces that I have done and wished I had kept. Hope you love him too.
