I had never seen a box suspended by its legs so I wanted to design and build one. In the process of doing that it took a spidery shape. It took four months of after work and weekends to finish. The main body is box jointed along its length. The legs are doweled and have internal splines where they meet. The drawers are double blind dovetailed. After the final prep work it received an exoskeleton consisting of three coats of a hand rubbed BLO/Min Spirit/varnish mixture and two buffs of Briwax.
The woods I used are Quilted Maple, Wenge, Bolivian Rosewood, Santos Rosewood, Claro Walnut, Figured Bubinga, Curly Maple, Curly Birch, Paduak, African Mahogany, Gaboon Ebony, African Blackwood, Purple Heart, Bocote and zebra wood. The drawers are lined in black, alligator print leather.
