Firstly, I apologize for the poor quality pictures. I am not sure what happened. This is a TV cabinet I made for my wife which she asked for as a Christmas present. The top and frame is Jarrah that I milled from a log I found laying out in the bush. The draw fronts and side panels are veneer which I cut from Beef wood boards, a timber found in the Ozzy outback. A desert timber. I bought the Beef wood at an auction. The handles which I made are also Beef wood. The finish is Livos counter top oil.

Wow, that is a beautiful cabinet. And with all the Jarrah, I had to look and find you were from Wokalup so that explains the availability of all that nice wood.

cheers, Jim

That’s amazing looking wood, nothing like that here. That inlay is a really attractive touch.

Fantastic job. Would look awesome even without inlay, and inlay makes it piece of art.

Pictures seem fine to me, maybe not enough of them is more of a concern!!

Now using Jarrah for furniure is one class act, bloody tough on everything, tools hands and workabiity and then you have applied some to inlay it to boot.

Tripping over Jarrah these days is almost unheard of here in QLD, and any I find I keep just for the heck of it.
Knowing if I use it my tool sharpening skills will be needed at the completion!

Just out of interest how did you mill it?

Brilliant result !!
