Tree Cupboard or Armoire, Part Three

       Tree Cupboard or Armoire, Part Three
I  finally finished my tree cupboard complete with the birds in the nest and the etching of flowers and butterflies. 

I build two drawers with birds carved on them. This whole cupboard was built using a simple glue, screw and cap method of building and carved with a hand held rotary tool and a 5/16" carving bit.

On the right side I incorperated a bird and nest.

I sandblasted a morning glory vine and other flowers and butterflies on the mirror.

Handy Garden Tool Storage Ideas

I Love to garden and have my garden tools  nearby. I built this neat tool garden shelf to store my tools away, but still have them handy when I need them. The shelf protects them from the rain and gives me storage on top. I decorated it with a horse shoe that I found while digging a new garden.  The shelf is also great to dry flowers.
The top and side pieces of wood are a simgle board, and the back boards are just butted together so they can move a little with the weather. You could paint this with wood sealer before the white coat to further  weather proof it. 

This shelf can be ordered on my Etsy site in the size and color you want.
