I bought this timber a couple of years ago. I believe it was retrieved from the river and then milled. The timber has a wood density of 995 kg/m3 at 12% mc. If this is compared to Pine (Radiata) which has a wood density of 460 kg/m3 you will start to realize this is a heavy dense timber.
The stitches in the rail are Osaige Orange which is an amazing naturally orange timber. The dvd/video box is removable.
The joints are epoxied miters. Inspired design from Chris Abbot and James Krenov.

beautiful project. I really like the design. The stitches in the rail look great. I like how the very linear and hard lines contrast with the natural “defect” in the wood

What a great combination of weight and weightlessness—and of rustic and modern design. The “stitching” is a great idea.
