This cabinet will hold basses and guitars in cases.

Euro beech framing, cherry and chilean myrtle panels. The rails are cut from one large board, kept in sequence as is the cherry in the top panels. The grain in the top panels changes direction. The Myrtle will be hand carved to achieve irregular lines and painted. The tribal art of Papua New Guinea has a big influence on the work I do. I love it. The feet are a nod to Leo Fender. The framing is 27mm thick, the stiles and rails are slot mortised to a depth of 55mm each, tenons 110mm. Square shoulders.

Very beautiful work Bill. I would love to see the carving in progress and when finished. Thanks for taking the time to share with us.

That is a humongous barrel Slater is in; standing tall, arms outstretched. Damn.
