This is my third “Diwata” http://lumberjocks.com/projects/74538 I made it narrower and taller than than the last two. I also did the sides in slats and incorporated the gouged design to it.
The door handles are balayong wood and are sculpted from the door frame. I offset them so the slats peer through them. I was asked several times if I sculpt a solid blank of wood and slice it up fro the door slats. The slats are milled individually then dowelled through and through with Iron wood. I then place spacers in-between the slats before I start sculpting them.
The two top drawers are sculpted from balayong. The top is balayong with curly molave breadboards. Legs are kamagong (ebony) while the backing is in ipil.
The cabinet has 2 shelves.
Dimensions: H 50” W 40” D 22”
Thanks for taking time to view my works.
