I made this little wall cabinet from re-purposed church pews. It uses a french cleat to hang it from a wall.
Above you can see the flower that is padouk. It is first built marquetry style and then when the flower is constructed, then it is inlaid into the cabinet, wrapped around the cabinet stile and then into the door stile.
The pull is made of carved wenge.
Here is a better view of the flower. The glass looks distorted because it is an art glass. I treated the bright brass coated hinges with heat and then put them in an ammonia fuming. The back of the cabinet is bead board. The entire cabinet was made only with hand tools.
