Shelf lacking sticks

Materials: LACK and silver birch branches

I drilled holes in a LACK shelf with a hole saw.

I poked silver birch branches through and siliconed them in place with black silicon.

    Looks good. Maybe not for those living on a fault line, but it has a modern and natural style.

    I think it looks great. Still, those branches sticking down towards my eyes would make me uncomfortable.

    I like it, simple and understated, but a nice statement.

  7. pretty smart… but, why the drilling? …you could cut branches instead drilling, and then stick them to LACK :D
