Suspension bridges have always served as inspiration for my work and this is perhaps most evident in the design of this floating shelf that doubles as a sculptural wall hanging. The red oak shelf is supported on one side by the vertical mahogany fin that attaches to the wall while the other side floats freely an inch away from the wall. Steel cables run from the fin to the self, supporting the cantilevered portion of the shelf, just like in a suspension bridge.
