Cabinet on Stand
by: Taimi Barty

My intention was to call this cabinet "Liquor, Lipstick and Love" as it could hold any or all of these. However, as I was putting the last coat of wax on the European Olive Ash cabinet, I discovered a tiny, but perfect heart shape in the grain of the wood on the coupered door. "Hjartat" means "the heart" in Swedish. There are two dovetailed drawers inside the cabinet as well as an adjustable shelf. The stand is made of Kwila, a Southeast Asian wood, that was a true joy to shape with my spokeshaves although it dulled them beyond belief due to the mineral deposits in the wood.
