This is my latest project which I am about to undertake. It is a Tea Cart that was sketched by my client. She wanted an Alvar Aalto inspired tea cart and she designed this piece and asked me to build it. There will be a lot of challenges here for me. The biggest challenge will be the bent wood lamination. The client has selected quarter sawn white ash with a slight fiddleback figure to it. The top tray will be ash with white glass mosaic tiles while the bottom tray will be all ash. The sides of the trays will be box jointed. The wheels will be painted white and made of either poplar or mdf. The cart will be for indoor use only. Also not shown in the sketch will be a woven wood basket that will sit down in the top tray and be removeable. Needless to say this project will be a huge challenge for me.
