Woodleaf Studios recently completed another custom Credenza! The clean lines and bold finish of this walnut credenza were carefully tailored to meet the wishes of the client. The mitered and beveled door frames are surrounded with crisply machined and ebonized walnut dentals. Sequenced book-and-butt walnut burl panels bordered with ebonized bead stock add symmetry and a degree of sophistication to an otherwise fairly simple and clean rectilinear design. The doors operate via touch latch. Do you have a dream credenza that you would like to have crafted into reality? Send us an inquiry, we'd love to brainstorm with you and create your unique piece.
Whenever we are asked to engineer unusual functions or integrate unique objects or materials into a piece the result is referred to as a "specialty item". In the case of this shell table our client had been given an extensive collection of shells from a friend and neighbor."The shell collection itself is not that valuable but the neighbor and the memories are." Therefore, we set out to design a table that would showcase the shells while still providing a functional coffee table. Each individual shell rests upon a black lacquer faceted pedestal arranged in a balanced geometric pattern. The radiused book and butt walnut burl aprons wrap around each side and join the carved and gold leafed legs. An inset glass top lies flush with the aprons and is removed via a concealed "lifting block".
This traditional design was inspired by Stephan Jackman. It features three pocketing beveled glass doors. The cabinet is made with walnut solids. The hand carved base features claw feet beneath a rope braid. The side panels showcase sequenced book and butt walnut burl sketch face panels. The top projects slightly revealing a reeded leaf covered molding.
