Back-Lit Shaker Sideboard
Woodworker: Doug ClarnerClarner collaborated with artist Trenny Robb of Sutton, Vt., when designing this Shaker-style sideboard, which won the 2010 Vermont Fine Furniture and Wood Products Design Competition. Dubbed the “Thread-Leaf Sideboard,” the piece (15-in. deep by 50-in. wide by 34-in. tall) features mica panels designed by Robb, each containing a threadleaf Japanese maple branch and back-lit to show off the details. The top is a single cherry board. The rest of the piece is cherry with walnut details. Poplar is used as a secondary wood. It is finished with an oil-varnish mixture and wax.
