French Inlaid Corner Cabinet

25" Wide x 36" Tall x 13 1/2" Deep, 128 Hours

Made of Basswood, Poplar, Hard Maple, Satinwood, Holly, Mappa Burl, Walnut Burl, Eucalyptus, Black Castello, Zebrawood, lead and brass.

The cabinet is of my own design, based loosely on French Louis XIV era furniture. It was an exercise in hammer vennering, as all of the veneer was applied with hot hide glue and a glue hammer. Finished with milk paint, boiled linseed oil, Waterlox and wax.

In 2008 I was awarded the VeneerTech Craftman's Challenge Award for student design for this piece. I was no longer a student, but the award stipulated that the money go towards schooling. Instead of putting up a fuss I gave the $2,000 to my Alma Matter, The North Bennet Street School as thanks for all it had given me.
