The White Purpleheart hutch is made out of Cherry with Birdseye Maple panels with a Purpleheart Bead on the panels. This piece was made for a couple that saw my original purple heart hutch and wanted one that the bottom was closed in on and finished with a hand rubbed oil finish.

Your work is all so meticulously designed and built – I am not the least surprized that people come to you wanting one “just like” another you built.

This is lovely – the contrasts in the wood here are eye-catching in a most pleasant way. I want to run my hands down the door fronts and check out every corner of the interior. I think I am in love :-)

The only thing I am not 100% sold on is the handles, but we can not see them too well in your shots, so that might be my mind playing trick on me – are they are asymmetrical rectangles of maple and purpleheart?

Well done indeed! What process did I take to hand rub the oil finish?

A great job. I am nowhere near read to do inset cabinet doors but yours look perfect. I like the handles but not the latches. Other than that it is just a great design and execution.

A beautifully crafted piece. Looking at the doors, the cherry in the rails seems to be quite a different color c/w that in the styles. Vagaries of lighting ?
