These beautiful pieces are made of black walnut. In particular, the night tables are made entirely in solid wood, including the side panels -- making this one of the most challenging furniture projects I have encountered, as it had to be built with consideration for expansion joints between the component pieces.
The tops of the night tables were finished with six coats of soft white lacquer to provide depth and richness.
The drawer handles were custom-made in solid black walnut.
The drawers are in solid maple with English dovetail corners. They are equipped with concealed tandem full extension runners that have a mechanism for automatic soft closing.
