Video tour:

Tambour-topped chest with two drawers. The carcass is in birds-eye Huon pine, the tambour shows an ogre-faced spider in marquetry using various Australian timbers, the drawer and cabinet linings are Queensland silver ash and the drawer pulls are southern silky oak. I wanted to combine my loves of woodworking and macro photography in a single work. The Huon pine was a gift from a photography friend, and I photographed the spider in my garden.
