I went down to the Mokelumne River park near my house the other week with my wife and dogs and to my surprise, the water was so low that where the water is usually a rushing torrent, I could walk across!
In one of the pools in the middle I found this old limestone that probably hasn’t been reachable for a long time!
I love the mountain peak and lake it has and especially the “slide” down the front!
I cut it and made a Jatoba (Brazilian cherry) wood daiza for it.
The natural “gold” of the daiza brings out the gold color streaks in the limestone that come from our water up here with a lot of iron in it. This is a very hard and heavy limestone piece.
Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

Large Shohin Stand #1
Keep in mind that all the stands you see on this page can be built to any dimensions and I love to design new stands!
Large Shohin Stand #1
This #1 shohin stan is my largest and has the best woodworking joinery for those who care about how a stand is built. It has triple mitered joints at the top and double v-groove joinery on the other joints (very difficult). The landings are inset panels into frames. Can be made dark brown or a redder color depending on what you like.
It costs $11oo
This shohin set also comes with a storage box that holds all 3 stands. The large stand is 16″ across, 24″ tall and 6″ deep. Also made with v-notches and triple miters. Cost is $700
Shohin Stand #2
Shohin Stand #2 , 16″ x 24″ x 6″ deep- $400
Shohin Stand #3 , 12″ x 16″ x 6″ deep- $350
Small Shohin Stand #4 , 12″ x 12″ x 3.5″ deep- $220
#4 make look fragile but all the joints have tiny dowels and it is very rigid!
Shohin Stand #5

Shohin Stand #6, 6″ x 6″ x 4″ tall-$110
