J'Lynn Credenza

March has been a good month and has seen a good pace. All the larger projects wrapped up at the end of February and thus far March has seen a simple and sweet coffee table build (posting soon), as well as closing in on the new floor lamp release... and, lets throw in some travels to the Hawaiian Islands for Haley and I's twelfth anniversary. 

The pics below are from the last credenza that wrapped up before March. This one was once again solid walnut, though this time un-steamed, hence the more reds in the wood and greater differentiation between the sapwood and heartwood. Roughly %90 of the walnut on the market has been steamed to create a more uniform color, this slab however had not been steamed, leaving that sharp contrast between the lighter sapwood and darker heartwood. I thought it would be nice to highlight this by book-matching the boards and turning the sapwood toward the center, creating a continuous streak around the entire piece.

Below are some pics of the process and final piece, hope you enjoy!
