Spalted Maple Armoires

A pair of clothing armoires in all solid spalted maple, with exterior details kept to a minimum – no need to accentuate the look of this material….

The aluminum frames behind the doors aid in retaining the flatness of the wide planks.

The sides and tops/bottoms are held with unglued mortise and tenon joinery, fastened by slotted aluminum angles – this seemed prudent, as the differing density and perhaps range of motion of the wood threatens splitting if not allowed to move freely. Perhaps over cautious?
