Built for a friend’s carriage house apartment; installed in a stair landing.

The case is New Zealand pine (yes, from Home Depot); the inserts and base ribs are black limba.

All pine frame joints are simple butt with 50mm Festool dominoes every 6” or so. Limba inserts are 1/8” proud of frame on top, deep tongue and groove into the pine with Shaker 45-degree shaper cuts.

That is lovely. Nice proportions and wood contrasts. Ironic that its nzpine, here in nz its not considered posh enough for furniture. Except by me.
