Modern Cherry and Figured Maple Tansu Credenza by Craig Yamamoto
CHERRY AND FIGURED MAPLE CREDENZA BY CRAIG YAMAMOTO
Circa late 20th/early 21st century, unsigned
Item # 801LCU27
An entirely hand-crafted piece by woodworker Craig Yamamoto of Whidbey Island in Washington, this example is crafted out of solid cherry with gorgeous figured maple drawers. The sliding shoji doors have recessed cherry slots and simple astragal molding over the white glass. Each drawer has a sculpted cherry handle and self-closing sliders on the dovetailed drawer body; the top of the sides have the nice added detail of an applied molded edge. The credenza is intended for use as an entertainment stand, with holes already present in the back to allow for air circulation. Of impeccable form and incredible quality, this is a piece that was crafted with care and intended to last many lifetimes.
