This is what happens when you play with milk paint and a set of carving gouges.
Carved basswood cabinet/bookshelf in middle earth style. Curved door panels were coopered. Mahogany back and Khya base. Slanting the tongue and groove back pieces was a lot of fun. The interior of the doors panels are lined with Japanese rice paper.
