Winner! Federal Inspired Cellarette

By Nicholas J.V. Vanaria in Romeoville, IL.

Winning Category

Built from Sapele Mahogany and inlaid with Maple and Walnut, this cellarette/bottle case was inspired by a Queen Anne version seen at Winterthur Museum.  I kept the proportions of the case, but changed it to Federal style instead.  All of the inlay was done from scratch with sand shading on the fans and homemade bandings and stringing

The finsh was a coat of Seal-A-Cell followed up by multiple coats of Arm-R-Seal, sanded between coats, then polished, and finished off with a wax.
