Woodworker: Jeff Koopus
Koopus was commissioned to build this cupboard for a client. Made from crotch mahogany and sycamore with bird’s-eye maple and ebony veneer, the base was inspired by a Federal bowfront sideboard pictured in Albert Sack’s Fine Points of Furniture (out of print), while the upper section was a collaborative effort with his client. The cupboard has an aniline dye, oil, and lacquer finish.
