A few years ago Wanda bought a pair of very large round knife boxes at a New Orleans auction. She asked me to make a sideboard with the same large scale to display her knife boxes. I made this 12 foot long Walnut sideboard. It is solid Walnut which we milled from a tree on our place, with poplar secondary wood and some cherry wood details. The carved backsplash has a folky eagle, tobacco leaves and dogwood blossoms. I had to make it in three pieces so it could be moved from the shop.
