Fine Wood Furniture by Craig Thibodeau

Maple Leaf Cabinet
34" high by 16" deep by 42" wide
Spalted Maple, Mahogany, Curly Eucalyptus, Madrone, Cherry, Walnut Burl and misc marquetry woods.

A small two door cabinet in Honduran Mahogany and Spalted Maple with marquetry imagery of Japanese Maple Leaves and branches flowing across the front and top of the cabinet. The interior is veneered in striking Curly Eucalyptus and the doors have integrated handles carved from Mahogany. The cabinet is finished with satin Conversion Varnish and Lacquer.

This is the first cabinet I built in a new style of marquetry work that focuses on fall colors and different leaf patterns using only natural wood for the marquetry work. I have since done a number of side tables using the Japanese Maple leaf marquetry pattern and a cabinet with White Oak Leaves and Acorns.

Artist Biography

As a furniture maker my work evolves by blending the practical and artistic needs of my clients with my desire to create individual objects with intensity and feeling. I often incorporate imagery in the form of flowers, leaves and animals into select pieces of my furniture, designing subtle floral ornamentations to enhance my furniture with classical marquetry.
My marquetry furniture combines the structural geometry of a man made object with the asymmetry of nature represented in flower and leaf patterns and motifs. The addition of decorative marquetry is a doorway into unique and exiting visual forms and more expressive freedom. In this way I attempt to fill the basic need of a functional object with creative detailed work far exceeding expectations.
In recent years my furniture has won numerous Best of Show and 1st Place Awards in regional and national exhibitions including Best of Show at the 2007 International Design In Wood Exhibition and Best of Show at the 2007 and 2009 Artistry In Wood Exhibitions at the Sonoma County Museum of Art.
Artist profiles and images of my work may be found in magazines and books including; Fine Woodworking, Romantic Homes, San Diego Home and Garden, Lark Books, Crafts Report, Woman’s Day and many others.
