Since I cut this piece I have had a lot of encounters with 8-legged friends! At least three instances where spiders were "out to get me". Black Widows are out and about here. I had originally named it "The Nightmare" but recent events caused me to change the title to "The Intrusion". I enjoyed making it! It is cut from Birch, 1/8" thickness, and measures 3.5" high.

Another very very cool project.

I have a co-worker who swears a black widow spider chased her across her garage. I have black widows in the garage also but they run away.

It's lovely, very elegant. It reminds me of those "woman has a stiff beehive and an itchy feeling" urban myths.
