On this piece I wanted to showcase some great figured wood. The client is a art lover so we wanted to frame these book matched maple panels like a gallery of art work. The panels looked good with a natural wood frame but putting the black laquer on really put the focus on the great figured panels. Ordinaraly I don’t care for painted wood but it was definatly the right choice for this job. It really works well with her eclectic collection.

Very nice!
Are they solid wood or veneered? How thick are the panels?

Super what is the finish you used on the panels?

Looks great, your right about the paint, really makes the panels stand out like an art piece.

All great artwork should be framed, especially if it’s bookmatched panels!

This is definitely well designed and the wood panels are beautiful. I love the contrasting colors of the black and the wood grain. Overall it is a great job.

Great effect. The painted wood really draws your eye to the figured wood panels.

Gorgeous job, beautiful wood. You are absolutely right about the black setting of the natural wood, it sure does. Nice job.
