Maple, African Olive, Spanish Cedar
46"x 20" x14"
Commissioned by a notable Canadian writer and historian to help organize writing projects.
The upper portion of this piece is made of African olive wood …I am not sure if there are actual olives that grow on this tree, I think the wood merely resembles real olive wood. In any case it is truly lovely wood. The two drawers are constructed of hand cut dovetails and feature maple drawer slides that also serve as the pulls. The lower unit features a series of narrow shelves to accommodate numerous manuscripts. $11,000
