The Gentleman's Valet is a chest designed for organizing and storing the various necessities of today's man. The exterior is crafted from a rare sampling of curly birdseye maple veneer, while the interior is made from quarter-cut Makore. This cabinet is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as being made primarily from wood that was harvested in a sustainable manner from a well-managed forest. This cabinet has seven drawers which are designed to store shirts, socks, briefs and ties. In the upper drawer there are special trays for cuff links, fountain pens, watches and loose change. Inlaid into the top of this cabinet is a design of a turtle, which was inspired by an aboriginal rock glyph. Turtles are deeply revered in many ancient cultures and civilizations because they are one of the oldest forms of life and its shell is symbolic of protection. A turtle also does not move very fast, indicative of the need for patience. The wood used to make this inlay carries a special provenance in the world of sustainable forest management because it comes from the last remaining board known to exist of the first wood to be sustainably harvested on the Solomon Islands in the early to mid-1990s. This wood made its way to America by way of Eco-Timber of California.
