The client was "updating" bedrooms in their homes that had belonged to grown children who are now living on their own. The client has several cherry furniture items in their home, and likes the fact that cherry tends to darken with time (whereas most woods lighten). This live edge cherry headboard is made from two magnificent cherry slabs and has a food-safe chemical free oil finish. The slabs were flattened and book-matched.
We'd done a piece of furniture already for this client in a two-tone look. We'd made him a desk with a walnut top and cabinet which had oak drawer fronts. He wanted to maintain the theme of the two tone look on this custom built dresser but change up the materials. We'd always felt that cherry and maple would go together as well as oak and walnut and we were' really glad to have a chance to try it out on this dresser.
