The word flow has many shades of meaning but most involve the steady movement of something. … The verb flow often describes the movement of fluids, such as water or even blood, but it can also describe other things that move in a constant stream. The grain flows connecting the tops and drawer fronts. Symmetry flow through book-matched juniper drawer handles reflecting its opposites’ mirror image.

Juniper wood has both unequaled diversity and unreliable consistency. The swirling grains and exquisite knots remind me of melting sundaes with tones of cream, chocolate and caramel. Most woodworkers avoid juniper because it’s notorious for its holes, cracks and inexplicable voids.
