A couple of years ago I was browsing lumberjocks and stumbled on a piece of furniture that appeared to be a console or a credenza executed in a style that looked like a recent interpretation of a teak danish modern piece, with the face constructed of smaller rectangular pieces of various woods running horizontally. The natural colors of the woods made me think it was two or three different hardwoods. From what I can recall, it was similar to some of the patterns you see glass tiles common in modern style kitchens like this one:
The face of this console/credenza was curved in a subtle way (a gentle curve, not like Bombe), and from the photos I recalled seeing, the craftmanship was superb. I’d love to see that project again if anyone here recalled the same thing.
Alternatively, is there an established technique for asembling the pieces for the door in the way I describe? I know I could create a checkerboard effect easily by gluing, sawing and then regluing the parts offset. I don’t think I could achieve any randomness in the pattern that way, so does anyone have any suggestions?
