This is a fun behind the scenes look into the attention to detail Matthew puts into his designs. This is the “Keys” headboard as seen in the post right before this one. The different plots represent the depth of the woods used in the piece. #design #custommade #woodwork #woodleafstudios

“Keys” a study of contrast for a client’s queen headboard. 64”w x 30” x 1 5/8” wall mounted, made from wenge and tamarind. A favorite of Designs by Matthew, this headboard shows no exposed fasteners. Tamarind is a collage of colors and variegated patterns while wenge is a dense, deep and dark chocolate wood with liner streaks. Our client is so pleased! #woodleafstudios #headboard #woodworking #design #tamarind #keys

This beauty is a Ratlif trapezoid storage bench. The entire piece is made of oak. The bench is two toned with 3 drawers. For the stains, we used a process called fumigation; exposing the bench to a high grade of ammonium hydroxide by putting it in a tent, with trays of the Hydroxide. Turns out you can be a chemist and a craftsman at the same time! #ratliftrapezoid #storagebench #oakwood #fumigationstainprocess #woodleafstudios #shoplocalraleigh #woodworker #craftsman #highendbench

Sometimes simple is the most beautiful. This glass cabinet is made of walnut and walnut burl (a book and butt symmetrical pattern). I love the rich chocolate and espresso tones walnut has, elevating the elegance of the antique glasses on the shelves. Surely puts me in the mood for a classic cocktai

Woodleaf is committed to excellent, detail oriented fabrication. So much so that we now shrink ourselves to fit in the furniture and get to the tiiiiiiiniest detail. Seen here; Randy on the shelf of a what-not bookcase and Robby working closely behind. #whatnot #repurposing #woodleafstudios #customfurniture
