Patience

Finally.
Patience 2014

Four or more years ago a client arrived in my shop with 5 pieces of oddly shaped maple burl veneer and asked me to make a cabinet inspired by the veneer shape.  And so my journey began...  


After making a "proof of concept" and many mock ups



Work began on round drawers


Bow front doors


Hardware


French polishing for that perfect shine



and trimming


and fitting


and overcoming obstacles



Fitting drawers



and turning drawer fronts on the lathe


It was a long journey but well worth it.
