Inspired by the Vietnamese tradition of wrapping Chung and Giay cakes in leaves, this cabinet melds shapes and textures and demonstrates the versatility of American red oak. The dimensional stability of the timber makes it equally suitable for the larger shapes in addition to the detail where the natural meets the stained timber. Being almost completely red oak, this is a heavy piece designed to endure for generations.
