Woodworker: Thomas Starbuck Stockton
Stockton worked with gallery owners Pat and Steve Kirkish of Healdsburg, Calif., to design this sapele, walnut, and white oak wardrobe for an attorney’s office in Washington, D.C. For the marquetry and inlay design on the door panels, he used walnut for the branches, oak for the leaves, and abalone and mother-of-pearl for the flowers. The wardrobe, 20 in. deep by 38 in. wide by 71 in. tall, is finished with oil. Stockton says it took about 100 hours to complete.
