Woods for cabinet with walnut burl doors

Doors will be of walnut burl that has been 4-way book-matched, then veneered to 1/2" Baltic birch plywood. While there is a hole in the veneer, that will become a key design element in the piece. Back of door is straight-grain walnut veneer.

For the body of the cabinet I have chosed Jatoba, which is a straight-grained, refined wood commonly referred to as Brazilian cherry, although it is not in fact a cherry tree.
