Woodworker: Modeled after a Shaker sewing chest, this cabinet was made to hold a Japanese teapot and cups. The top is a cherry slab, sliced from the log where two branches flowed together; the dark crack along the center shows that meeting place. The structure of the carcase is cherry, the drawer fronts and side and back panels are fir, and the drawer pulls are wenge. Coy made the piece by hand—including the milling and resawing. He allows that the lumberyard used electricity on the wood before he got it, but “once it entered my studio, I only touched it with hand tools.” The cabinet is 18-in. deep by 37-in. wide by 36-in. tall; the finish is an oil/varnish blend and wax.
