Here are a couple of nightstands that are ready for the final waxing and delivery.

The drawer front veneers are sliced mahogany centers surrounded with maple, ebony and tulipwood banding and ribbon stripe mahogany outer band. On this project the drawer front veneers and top veneers were cut and assembled by Inlaid Woodcraft Company. They use a computer controlled laser cutting process to cut the veneers. I am able to export CAD drawings in DXF format that they use to import into their system to layout, cut and assemble the veneers with incredible accuracy. They also know the art and science of exotic veneers and have been a joy to work with. Jeff Stollard is the General Manager with the company and really knows the business of high-end woodworking. The drawer front veneers were supplied taped together and then we vacuum pressed them on to curved panels. They applied the top veneers to 1” thick – square mdf panels and we cut them to the round shape and veneered the edges.
The legs and rails are quartered mahogany with ribbon stripe accents.
The drawers are mahogany hardwood with maple slides. The dovetails were machined with a router and a Leigh dovetail jig ( with a shop built jig )
The tops are Carpathian elm burl center with tulipwood border – quartered mahogany field and ribbonstripe outer border and drop edge.
The finish was done by our shops finisher/artist with dye stain – glaze – and clear coat. I am afraid the photos don’t do the finish justice. :(
I hope to get some better views from the clients home.
