This set of bult in bookcases uses a lot of walnut and anient kauri for door fronts. The inside is oak. The door panels have applied fabric. Finish is tung oil. This was my first major project and set off many years of wood working. I purchased the wood from a guy that had it stored in a basement for years. The walnut was cut from a single tree and each side is fletch matched. The panels on each side open with shelfs for storage also. The mantle section has inlaid kauri book matched from the center. My wife purchsed the kauri as a christmas gift. My daughter said she would cry if she got wood for a gift! I still have a few peices of the kauri waiting for a special project. These pieces are stump sections – highly figured. I also made a set of end tables that match.
