Gabriele: Smooth Bent Apple with Masur Birch (Nautilus)
Product Number: 002-533-0079
While Gabriele may have developed a stellar reputation with his playful Poker and Vulker shapes, it's these more full-bodied numbers I find ultimately the most inviting. This bent Apple is an excellent example; with its plump disposition, lively forward posture, and subtle, detailed linework, it certainly has a lot going for it. It's finished in a warm, honey-blonde stain, accentuating some lovely grain, and paired to a neat ring of masur birch at the mortise. Coupled with all that, the dome-based saddle stem is made of a darker shade of cumberland, lending an additional sense of warmth to the aesthetic at play here.- Daniel Bumgardner
