Using miter construction for the corners and dado construction for the bottom this piece is made to be heirloom quality and last for many generations.

The finish is hand rubbed Tung oil with a poly topcoat and the floor has an attractive leather lining . There are no dyes or stains used on this valet and everything you see is natural.

Padauk grows in tropical climates, although the geography changes from rain forest to dry, nearly treeless plains with each species. You’ll find padauk in India, Indochina, the South Pacific, West Africa.

King Solomon, known for his wisdom in governing the Israelites during the 10th century B.C., must have really known his wood, too. He chose padauk for the pillars of his temple.

French Kings Louis XV and Louis XVI were separated from Solomon by thousands of years. Yet, these 17th-century rulers also favored padauk. With it, royal woodworkers crafted kingly cups and chalices. Because water placed in these vessels turned yellow, royalty believed the “potion” had medicinal properties.

A century later, the colorful wood of Solomon and the Louis attracted even wider acclaim. As a veneer named amboyna, padauk was featured in Empire-style furniture.
