Woodworker: Bert Ray
This wall cabinet (16 in. deep by 54 in. wide by 26 in. tall) was built for a Dallas-based design company. Ray created the asymmetric, textured marquetry pattern on the doors by playing with the different veneers and their grain direction. The cabinet's frame is walnut and the doors are ebony, ash, satinwood, lacewood, walnut, tarara, kingwood, and pecan veneers over birch plywood. It's finished with five coats of Minwax Tung Oil.
