Father’s day brought a request from St. Louis for this special mens bedside valet. Made of bubinga, it measures 14”x 9”x 2 7/8”, and sports a pair of “gull wing” doors. Each door is inlaid with an Andiroba, maple, wenge and costello inlay, that somewhat reminds me of some of the native american designs seen in the southwest. Between the doors is a slanted bay for your Iphone, and a curved till to keep your change. Upon opening the doors, a pencil tray and small “cubby’s” are to the left, and to the right are two nice compartments for larger items. The bottom of the valet is lined with a beautiful “dusky blue” ultra suede, providing a nice background to the dark red bubinga. The mitered corners are splined with wenge and the doors are hinged on brass rod. Finished with danish oil and wax, this neat little box should keep the nightstand organized and provide years of service and enjoyment.
Thanks for looking !
