Woodworker: Silas Kopf
Kopf achieved the bone-dry look of this cabinet using marquetry techniques. Satinwood veneer forms the background, while black aniline-dyed basswood is used for the cracks and Ebon-X is used for the base and arches. At the epicenter of the piece, where the densest cracking occurs, is a digital clock.
