walnut cabinet with spalted walnut panel. consecutively sawn planks were used to create this piece. the twisted legs are an unknown species. I believe it is some kind of willow. I made this piece for the Adirondack Museum benefit.

A very pleasing combination of rectalinear and non-rectalinear elements. Well done !

As I’ve said before I like that you marry the conepts and it is hard to do. Nice piece. wondering if a door with smaller rails and styles or a door w/out would change the visual movement through the piece?

Great piece of work. Nice use of the natural edge of the slabs.
Thanks for showing.

Very nice style. Rough look and natural edging is the best look in my book! God bless.
