This was a fun project to work on. The Piece is a mixture of classic and contemporary design. A perfect mix of form and function, Constructed with Black Cherry, native to my home in Appalachia. Antiqued brass corner guards and leg banding, is painstakingly inlaid to perfection. The finish is a black rub, which has been give the a rub here or there to give the appearance of age. Truly an heirloom quality piece to be enjoyed for the centuries.
