I rarely make a piece of furniture that
is not for a customer, to fit a specific space in a home or office. When
building this particular console I just loved it so much that I felt
compelled to build a sister to it.
I designed and built the original for a client
in Chicago who was looking for a unique piece of furniture that would serve
as a dramatic focal point to the entrance of his home. The top is Amboyna
burl sunburst pattern, with a Yew wood edge, and an ebony half circle at the
The sister piece is made of Amboyna burl
sunburst pattern, with African Satinwood veneer edge, and a Satinwood circle
at the back.
The solid wood edge and turned legs are made of antique Cuban
mahogany (Mahogoni Swietenia), which, sadly, was deforested by the end of
the 16th Century for use by the very best and most talented
woodworkers of London. Today it is extremely rare and very expensive.
Unfortunately, these photos are of poor quality,
as the best ones were accidentally destroyed. Against the advice of others
not to include low quality photos on my website, I feel this piece is just
too special to not be included.
The sister piece has not yet been finished or
assembled. Therefore, the future owner can choose a finish in any shade,
color and sheen to fit anywhere in their home.
