This was part of my second year mastery work at the NW Woodworking studio. I wanted to try a milk- painted and carved basswood cabinet and this is the result. The stand was going to originally be grain-filled and dyed black but I could not bring myself to cover the straight-grained Meranti. The blue through tenons were an afterthought.
Named it after one of my favorite authors from my childhood as the theme suited middle earth. Carved the rain and puddles through the milk-paint. The inside door panel has Japanese rice paper applied. Made this for my kids room as they have a growing collection of books that could use a bit o’neatn.
