These drawers were fabricated for a custom entertainment center that I designed and constructed for my family.  I utilized inlaid dovetail construction using maple and walnut as the contrasting woods.  I also added an inlaid macassar ebony strip on the side of the drawer.  The front of the drawer is made from 9 pieces of wood.  A highly figured curly maple panel is set within a beveled maple frame that I dyed.  A beading detail made from macassar ebony to match the side strip was then added to the perimeter of the frame.  The drawers use solid maple sides.
