I really like how you have matched the grain pattern, yet provided some contrast on the top. Well done.
Very nice. Well done.
No, you are not the only one.

Very nice piece, thanks for sharing it here. The top actually looks like figured maple.
Thanks, Gina, for posting the link to construction photos. When I first saw the opening frames of the video I thought it was a cabinet in Asian style with opaque rice paper or thin wood sides. It is a lovely piece that obviously took a lot of skill to craft.
Aesthetics is more a philosophy than a mechanical skill, but for purely subjective and personal aesthetic reasons, this is not something that captures my imagination. But others are obviously appreciative of even the most unusual aspect of the cabinet. I like the piece, but it is a little unusual in its affect for my taste. Just proves again that in some cases functionality and aesthetic effect are both in the eye and imagination of the maker.
Quote from blkryder: "Given the first comment the point is apparently to seperate the intellectuals from the simpletons. Keep on making beatiful thought provoking pieces."
Of course, an actual intellectual would be able to spell "separate" and
"beautiful". Most of the videos in finewoodworking focus on skill levels combined with pleasing aesthetics. While skill level is apparent in this video, breathing associated with singing paired with woodworking is rather esoteric. The general observation "Form follows function" begs for the question, "So what?" Oddities do not fine woodworking make.
Sorry, but this is one of the few videos on finewoodworking that has little practical value. What is the point?
