Dual Chest of Drawers

Description: This functional and elegant piece won First Place at the International Design in Wood Competition in San Diego, CA. The cabinet case and drawers are made from richly colored Peruvian Walnut, the drawer bottoms are crafted from Tennessee Aromatic Cedar for a wonderful scent and moth resistance for fine cloths. The floating base is made from African Wenge, a very hard and beautiful wood. The floating top is crafted from a book matched pair of highly figured
California Claro Walnut slabs, the ‘wing’ like patterns on the left and right ends are from grafts of English Walnut when the tree was young to produce high quality walnuts. The slabs are reclaimed wood from walnut producing trees in Sacramento, CA that find a second life in spectacular lumber, after they have stopped producing nuts. The cabinet cases are constructed with dovetail joints for strength and timeless beauty. The drawers are constructed with precision rabbet and dado joints for a snug and smooth ‘piston’ fit. Elegant bronzed drawer pulls add a contemporary feel to the piece. The base legs have a clean radius with gently arced rails. The craftsmanship is superb with beautiful and sturdy joinery and a satin smooth finish.
