The main goal of this project was to create a platform that could showcase our strengths in both our detail and marquetry/veneer work in a more contemporary format. The cabinets offer many unique details that demonstrate this, from the micro reeded details, the up-lighting of each deck, the herringbone parquetry work on the lower deck and ceiling, the curved interior corners, the perpendicular veneer door edges flanked by the walnut piping, the automotive finish on the drawer box sides interrupted by the teak micro reeding to the both vertical and horizontal matching of all of the ziricote exteriors and Burmese teak interiors. A lot of details in an understated package.

Comment by Alfred Sharp, 2014 judge “When I look at this entry, I’m envious of the level of design and even more of the quality of execution that went into this work.”
