Influenced by James Krenov, the artist designed this piece around the unique book matched set of curly maple panels, making this cabinet beautiful and functional. All handmade with solid black walnut legs mortised to walnut stretchers make up the stand. The cabinet body is also black walnut with a bookmatched maple door panel set into a walnut frame hung with solid brass Brusso hidden knife hinges. Dovetail joints join the spalted maple drawer fronts to the curly maple drawer sides with bottoms of curly maple. Other woods include handmade and polished ebony handles on the drawer fronts, and a solid walnut shiplapped back. The finish is boiled linseed oil, blond and garnet shellac and hand rubbed with Briwax.

I have been an artist all my life and have worked with many different mediums. When I became a woodworker I discovered that no artist pallet or medium could compare with the variety of woods, grain patterns and colors available. Even after working with wood for over 30 years I still find it to be quite challenging. I like to design a particular piece around a unique or unusual piece of sustainable wood. Subtle lines and curves that showcase contrasting colors and grains or the figure of the wood; I will often utilize woods that have natural flaws or imperfections and spalting. All of my fine furniture is constructed with solid woods using mortise and tenon joints for heirloom quality and dovetails joints on the drawer boxes for strength and beauty. My main influences are furniture makers James Krenov and David Marks. Krenov for his attention to the little details that makes a piece of furniture beautiful and David Marks for being a perfectionist and the woods he uses in his designs.
