Walnut Display Cabinet

A handmade display cabinet is the perfect way to compliment an interesting collection or heirloom.

Detail notes:

Burr Walnut panels.

These days most decorative timber is very highly prized and as a result much of the finest figured timber rightfully ends up with the veneer manufacturers.

Veneer work was a sensible option in this case as timber's habit of expanding and contracting makes using fixed glass panels a potential problem. The man-made substrates are infinitely more stable.
