When you said bedside cabinet i thought of the usual small side table size.

This looks great i like the use of colour in the boards great job well done

Hi guys

thanks for the kind comments! the boss wanted some space for her stuff, and so it was. true to form this is twice the size of the previous cabinet, and it is already full.

next project is a blanket chest from the same wood for the foot of the bed.

cheers

Hi Mike

to the best of my knowledge it is iroko. however i am not 100%. i can tell you that it darkens considerably over time, especially with a varnish or linseed oil coat.  have a look at my "iroko bowl" picture, and you'll see ralph and i have had a good chat about it.

by the way, i posted this after reading your post about cabinet makers not showing as much as turners. i made this one year ago, so i forgot about it for my gallery. You'll be pleased to hear i am in a cabinet making phase again, so more cabinet related posts soon. i like that you raised the topic, this is everyone's site, and anybody should be able to put their opinion or ideas out there to help things along. i agree with the sentiment that the site is fine as is, but you will always find that if things stay the same for too long it will eventually stagnate.

cheers

I agree that as you say "if things stay the same for too long it will eventually stagnate." But this should not be a reason to change just a reason to consider alternitaves.

Not so sure about Iroka here in the bedside cabinet, not seen that kind of colour change in Iroka before, could be wrong, and i am sure someone will correct me ?

Very nice though, and great to see diversity from woodturning to cabinet work, my wife wants a small mantle clock designed to look like a grandfather clock, might have to get on with it some time.

Didn't you say the bowls were from the same timber ? if so mike might be right or possibly Cherry, not quite the right colour though
