Large Photo Frame Tree


I was recently commissioned to make a large version of my photo frame tree, and this was indeed significantly larger. This tree features 8x 6"x4" photo frames and 1x 12"x8" photo frame The backing tree was 9mm thick and cut on the large laser cutter at Nottingham Hackspace (I can't wait till my new big laser arrives, currently docking in Felixstowe).  The individual leaves were made from 1.5mm thick walnut. The custom engraving on the trunk features the customers initials and the date they met, the frame was made for their 5th (wooden) wedding anniversary

The whole tree measures 900m tall and 1000mm wide, which makes it the largest thing I've ever posted and boy didn't the post office love me that day.
