I built a storage bed this summer and was asked if I could build an armoire to match it, thus comprising a bedroom set. I'd never built an armoire but it sounded like a great design challenge and a chance to stretch my skills so here it is. It's built from baltic birch with jatoba (Brazilian cherry) veneer and solid jatoba and rosewood. I really like the variety of tones in the wood.
Our friends Randy and Megan came over to help me take some good photographs of the piece. Randy taught me the power of a solid white background and proper shading in taking good photos, plus he brought over his nice camera and artistic eye. Thanks Randy!
