Alice's Curio

Alice's Curio is an exploration that Matthew took into the whimsical world of Alice In Wonderland. The padauk door opens to reveal a landscape painted on a concave wall depicting a myriad of wildlife. The Pamele Sapele veneered body is accented with maple escutheons and rosewood banding. The upper and lower deck is made with teak parquet flooring. Ebonized columns help create an architectural feel while the maple balcony "pops" in contrast. This piece is one of many that Woodleaf Studios has donated to various fundraisers over the years. Alice's Curio was built for the Visual Art Exchange where it was auctioned at their annual fundraiser. The money raised was used to help support up and coming artists.

"Bond" Wall of Doors

This elaborate wall system engineered by Matthew Smith consists of a series of twenty-four operable door panels. There are also double acting pass-through doors on each end of this thirty two foot long facade. The facade is comprised of a blueprint matched sequence of pamele sapele veneer schedule. The middle four doors break into two sets of bifolding pocketing doors to create a fully continuos niche (see view 2). The doors on either end conceal built-in linen and silver storage (see view 3).
