This piece was inspired by a photo I saw of a completely different display cabinet, but provided the basic idea. It’s pretty straightforward. The body is alder, which is somewhat like cherry. The doors are waterfall bubinga veneer and the frame is ebonized (read- painted black) ash. The bubinga really makes the piece pop. If I were to do it over, I’d make the legs a little thicker (they’re 1” thick here) to give it more stability. I would also provide a way to fasten it, hidden of course, to the wall to keep it from tipping. I would also add a light to the open display area. Live and learn. See more at alancarterstudio.com.
