I almost forgot about these bedside cabinets. They are around 15 years old, on 35mm film scaned to the computer, the only photos I have.

This is where I was 15 years ago after many years drooling over Arts & Craft, Green & Green, Art Deco, Geo. Nakashima and James Krenov.

They are right and left, framed in PNG Rosewood with Australian Red Cedar panels.

In order, two fronts, front and side and front and back.

Those are two beautiful tables. The wood is superb and you have used it to good effect. I also really like the overall design. It really is a good fusion of a number of styles.

I like ‘em.

I especially like the insets on the rails, I’ve been looking for examples of details I can add to fairly square designs, and I need to let myself experiment more with ones like that.

Very nice. The use of the grain is beautiful.
It’s a bunch of work but worth while digging out the old photos and scanning them. I did it to post my past boat projects here and now I have the photos on my iPad where I will look at them more often than if they were in a box in a closet. They make me smile.
I hope that now you will look back at these photos more often and get a smile too.

The design, wood grain & colored insets all work together very well.

Thanks for sharing.
