About 4 weeks ago I posted a wood gloat. Mostly I needed some input from the LJ’s on what I really had. I had never worked with this Curly Movingui and did not know what I could expect. I received great interest and information. Thanks to all. I will create a blog for this project and post it ASAP. It has some fine qualities and some that aren’t so great. More detail in the blog.

This piece is a 2 drawer filing cabinet. (legal size files) Sometime this fall, I will do the rest of the office suite using ribboned Yellowheart. It is a good complement if not an exact match. The top is obsidian granite with a bull nose all the way around. The slides are full extension. There is no stain on this piece. I used 4 coats of poly-and sanded smooth in between. It is as slick as glass—finally—

Thanks for looking.

That is super nice. I’ve never even heard of Movingui, but it looks sweet. I’ll be checking into it.

Excellent file drawer. The wood is definitely unique and sort of reminds me of maple.

Absolutely gorgeous – both the wood and the craftsmanship!

I especially liked the way you carried the cathedral arch of the raised panels onto the drawer fronts. A clever touch that adds quite a bit of class to an otherwise ordinary piece of office furniture! Well done!

Again, awesome work. The wood is extraordinary. Oh, and the granite goes well with it. Good choice for a top.

Thanks for the kind words. Thanks Dusty for the movingui link. THey are not giving it away, are they. A quick calculation shows that wood at $30 and more PBF + shipping> and they did not have much anyway.

Blog to follow.

Wow did these come out great. Love all the details from the curves on the drawer fronts to the panels on the side and top. Great work.
