Woodworker: Bart NiswongerThough the piece is based loosely on Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann’s designs, Niswonger added a topographical element to this cherry and ash sideboard (17 in. deep by 55 in. wide by 34 in. tall) by playing with texture and color. He created the hills and valleys by making a series of cove cuts in two directions on the tablesaw. To finish the sculpted areas on the left, he sandblasted them to open the grain, then used a sealer. Then he rubbed acrylic paint into the wood, wiped off the excess, and finished with a gloss varnish topcoat.
