Matthew Smith and Woodleaf Studios periodically donate a piece of furniture to a local fundraiser. This is the third year that the Cancer Society is the recipient of a Woodleaf Studios creation for their fundraiser, The Raleigh Roundup. The cabinet seen here will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Incidentally, the Woodleaf Studios donation is often the biggest money maker for the live auction portion of the fundraiser. Money raised by the Raleigh Roundup is used by the South Atlantic Division of the Cancer Society. Much of the proceeds go to local universities for cancer research.

This contemporary piece was designed to be used in a master bath or workout room for storage of towels and toiletry items. Features of the cabinet include mahogany construction, brushed stainless steel dowels, rods and pulls, cast aluminum legs, Nero fossil tiles, concealed European hinges, and Blum soft motion door dampeners.

Love it! The offset really makes it interesting! I would have thought it was cherry. The brushed stainless steel dowels, rods and pulls, cast aluminum legs & Nero fossil tiles, really set it off! Something to be proud of! I hope it takes in a bundle for the charity event!

Great looking piece and a great idea. It should not have any problems bring in the bucks!

The cabinet sold for $1700.00 in the Raleigh Roundup live auction. That money goes to local American Cancer Society projects!
