Spring Flowers II Cabinet

Spring Flowers II Cabinet

This is the second cabinet in a series.

Construction

The exterior veneer is Red Gum and I have taken some care to make the grain run right around the cabinet, the solid wood components are Jarrah which has a good colour batch with red gum. For stability, I made the doors from laminated ply with solid timber vertical edges and then I’ve added 3mm Jarrah to protect the edges of the Red Gum veneer. The drawer fronts are solid Jarrah with the Red Gum veneer applied to the front and then a 3x3 Jarrah edging strip applied all round to protect the veneer. Drawer pulls are Jarrah. The drawer sides are Queensland Silver Ash with hand cut dovetails. The interior parts of the cabinet are Queensland Silver Ash veneer over 12 mm Baltic Birch ply. This method of construction virtually eliminates wood movement and should ensure a long and trouble free life.

Marquetry

The flowers, leaves and stems are all sawn from 1mm veneer, and cut into the background Red Gum veneer using the double bevel cutting technique. In this technique, adjacent components are placed over each other and a fine saw is used to cut the join line. By cutting at an angle (bevel) there is no saw kerf and the components match each other perfectly. The petals are Holly veneer. Holly is about the only light coloured wood which does not yellow with age, so the white colour should stay that way. The other coloured components are dyed veneer. The stems are walnut burl.

Timber and veneers are natural products, and a range of colour variations within each species is to be expected.

For some online purchases we are unable to specify what timbers are available at any one time as many of our products are made in a wide variety of timbers. In these cases please select your preference of light, medium or dark timber.

When checking out you can choose to be emailed images of available timber variations to choose from.
