A veneered curly koa, James Krenov style cabinet on a sculpted, curved leg, stand. The doors are bookmatched with a strip of sapwood down the middle. The turned Gaboon ebony handles accent the koa’s colors. This was a joint project completed in six days with expert woodworker and friend, Jack Hutchison from Houston TX.
