Thirty-three inches wide by twenty-eight tall, of Clara Walnut, this piece was made to match an existing example of a customer owned.  He had looked for over twenty years for a double but without success.  London Joiners buried Clara Walnut in the ground, covered the boards with earth, then sprinkled salt and some other natural chemicals (shop secret!) for several weeks to age the Walnut.  The door frames and carcass volutes are all hand-carved.  The marble top, after a lengthy search, matches the original.
