This piece is made 99% of Sappy Black Walnut, the other 1% woods are bloodwood and holly on the handles.
I took a load of nice but sappy walnut because it was cheap since no one wanted it. So, after setting a few weeks on my wood rack, I had the thought to make something usefull out something no body wanted and then the inspiration came in a flash, that the Walnut althoughit had many colors, (brown red and yellow black and white) All came from the same tree, same twigs same branches same roots. This piece represents all humans no matter what color of skin or culture, we all come from the same source, same Creator.
This pictures were taken shortly after the finish and therefore the glass on the doors is not yet installed.
The patterns are made by mitering laminates in any angle and regluing the new pattern. I did that 3 times(3 generations) except the sides wich have two generations.The backis ship lap. The made designs in the drawer bottoms from the leftover of the miter laminate. The finish is laquer.
