White Rose Cabinet

Here is the second cabinet I made for the local 55+ art show. This one was done with some figured etimoe veneer that my wife bought me years ago as a present, I have never seen etimoe veneer as dark as this so I would guess it has been steam treated. The inside is done with ice birch, and the top & bottom of the case are walnut as are the shelves. The walnut was stained to try to match the darkness of the etimoe. The cabinet base is maple. The most enjoyable part of this one was doing the stems, I almost got lazy and did them without the thorns, but I've never seen a rose bush without thorns, so I added them last, and it was well worth a little extra work.

Stunning! Nicely done. 

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

I like it. Simple and elegant with lovely veneer choices. 👍👍👌

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.

I'll have to get really old before I can make this.
There are some pieces of furniture that you can count as art. This is one of those. 


Think I prefer 'Kingfisher' out of the two.
Beautiful Craftsmanship, well done.

Both of these are pure excellence!

The cabinet style and size make for a fine canvas for your talents!

I do prefer this one however since I find the contrast very eye catching. I have fair amount of the etimoe, it is ammonia fumed and gets that dark from the tannins reacting. I find it a bit splintery, but it makes for a great background without a lot of wandering grain.

That is some fine work.

Another beauty! I assume these got a lot of attention at the art show.
Well done. And I agree, the thorns were well worth the effort


Lovely!  Color contrast and design are wonderful.  
Beautiful design and fine craftsmanship,.
