A good client was looking for a custom piece to store some sewing tool cases. The client wanted woods to include Zebra and Purpleheart, but we both agreed that either would make the box too heavy looking, so we needed a third wood. After trying several combinations, we settled on Quarter Sawn Sycamore at the third wood. I was so happy with that outcome that I had to make a second, larger piece. The first 4 pictures are of the new piece, the last picture is of the one I sent the client. I think this wood combo worked out great esthetically.

Excellent wood combination!

And beautifully executed as usual for you.

The mitered drawer fronts and the QS Sycamore dividers add a lot of classy detail as do the unique pulls.
