Different woods have very distinctive textures and tactile qualities. Working directly by hand with the materials leads to an appreciation of this, and to how these qualities might be used to effect. The laburnum used for the drawer fronts has a tight lustrous grain, while the ash of the case and stand is open grained and more matt. While there is contrast in the colours and texture, there is also a link between the white of the laburnum sap wood and the ash.
