Inlaying cabinets: A Makers Year 62

This is a cabinet in English Sycamore, a pale creamy timber that i use a lot for blonde pieces.  We have inlaid Macassar Ebony into that Sycamore surface using a laser inlay technique. But see how the maker chris hayward has managed to keep the points of the dark wood sharp and the work crisp . Super workmanship.

These cabinets are to hold shoes . They will sit either side of an entrance doorway in a Dubai home . Mens shoes one side, womens shoes the other side.
