Made for my wife as an anniversary present it was designed as one unit but made in two pieces so the table or cabinet could be used as stand alone items if wanted. The primary timber is Silky Oak (Grevillia Robusta) known as Australian Lacewood to some. The darker red trim and legs are Australian Red Cedar (Toona Australis). The finish is 7 coats wipe on poly worked with 0000 steel wool.
I was careful to select the bookmatched timber on the curved cabinet doors so that the grain reflected the sweeping flow of the legs of the table. The 14 drawers are lined in pale gold coloured synthetic felt.
Foolish project really, because now my wife would like me to fill it with jewellery!!
