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!!

Beautiful! If I saw that in a room, I’d go running over to look at it. I’d love to see more photos with open drawers.

James;

This is outstanding work ! The design, choice of woods & construction are all top notch. As bonobo said above, if this was in a room how could you not gravite to it & check out all the details? Some additional pics of the drawers open would be cool.

Thanks for sharing.

I am amazed! I am loving this one. The details are outstanding; it’s simple yet I’m sure it can hold a lot of baubles, and everything flows. Very pleasing to look at! Great job. I might just have to draw on this project for inspiration for the jewelry cabinet I’m going to make for my wife. Loved the quip about now having to fill it with jewelry. One question: what’s that piece that seems to be behind the cabinet (the one with what looks like a rising/setting sun)? I don’t see it in the other pics…
