A sideboard with textured ash panels and a cherry frame. Paint rubbed into the grain of the panels accentuates the liveliness brought out by texturing. The piece features three way mitered corners and tapered legs, scalloped drawer fronts, and stainless steel hardware, all highly glossy.

The striking patterns on the panels of this cabinet are simply the natural grain of the ash, mediated by the texture I cut into the surface. As a wooden (primarily) furniture maker, I take wood from trees which grow in a unique and organic ways but always roughly cylindrical, and cut it into rectangles. The grain once ran vertically, up the tree, in concentric cylinders. When the tree is turned into flat sawn lumber, the grain runs lengthwise in the board, the cylinders are fragmented. The nature of the tree is distorted and forced into a convenient shape for our purposes.

This piece takes rectangular boards from a single tree and peels back the surface to expose a fresh view of the organic structure within these pieces of lumber and the tree they came from.More
