About this project

This piece if full of character and highlights the beauty of wood in different ways. Scorching the surface to create a deep charcoal colour blackens the white Ash, this also produces an endless tactile surface around the exterior of the carcass where all the soft grain has been burned back. On the front face, pieces of end grain veneer has been carefully selected and veneered together to create a beautiful pattern that make up the two sliding doors. On the right, three soft close drawers.
