This project was for a client that wanted something of the “Ahh-Wow” category. This was the best I could come up with.
She wanted it to hide the ‘resident of the throne’ if someone came in unexpectedly and to have lots of storage.
The lower section has two regular drawers, two doors and two slide out sections on the ends with three shelves in each.
It’s made of straight grain maple with curly maple panels in the doors and end panels. I put on an ebonized strip at the top of the “Towers” and another at the bottom above the four bunn feet. The ‘Towers’ have two adjustable shelves in each and a glass glazed door at the top for display of artsy objects. It has a hand relief carved panel in the center in front of the sink.
None of the normal stains appealed to her but one was really exciting to her. So I used STRONG COFFEE as the stain. It was finished it with a glaze of burnt umber and several coats of wipe on poly.
She elected to use granite for the tops making it really elegant.
The pictures don’t do it justice since my camera can’t get a wide enough angle to get all of it.
-- God makes the wood beautiful--I simply rearrange it to make it more useful, hopefully.
