Simplicity, beauty. Kelloggs veneer work on this cabinet is fantastic. I like that its uncomplicated and graceful. See more of the cabinet here.
Modern in a great way. Tebbutts pair of chairs have a mid-century modern/Danish modern feel that I really like. The best chairs in the gallery, in my opinion. See them here.
Art Deco wow. More superb veneer work. I like everything about this writing desk, except the knobs (and the maker changed those to a dark wood). Check it out.
Pillow top. The soft edge profile reminds me of a comfy pillow, and the legs are simple but elegant. See it here.
Poplar? Seriously? I like the design of this piece, but am most impressed that the maker was able to make poplar look so good. Thats perhaps the greatest woodworking accomplishment in the gallery. More details here.

You might not know that we have a Readers Gallery on our website where you can post photos of your project and write a few (or more than a few) words about it. You can also go there to get inspiration for your next project. I was browsing through the gallery recently and decided to give exposure to some of the work that I like best. I think these pieces are well-designed and well-made, and show that their makers are well on the way to mastering the craft.

Have a personal favorite in the gallery? Tell us about it in the comments below.

That was Seth Rolland. It was in FWW #213. The piece is on the back cover, and then there is a short article that explains how he did it. Also, just as a helpful note, if you have another question like this send it to fw at taunton dot com. We read that email everyday and you'll get a quicker response.

The fanned out wood was supported to stablize the piece. Very interesting concept. Any idea on who this was or where I can locate the article?
