I’ve been visiting this site for two years now, and have found it both interesting, and inspiring.
But this is the first project I’ve posted.
This is my graduation-project from my evening-course furniture making.
The project was furst concepted as a piece of furniture for our bathroom. There should have been two washing-bowls on top of it, but when I furst mounted the doors and the top, I found it to be too beautifull to have it hidden in the bathroom.
So, the bathroom piece transformed into a floating dressoir :-).
But first, some history behind it.
I started the course 3 years ago. My love for woorworking has grown since.
About the same time, my mum baught some scrap wood for her wood furnace. It seemed to me to be hardwood. Some investigating reveiled that it was Wengé (the first time I had heard about it). When after that, I heard from my mum that the person she baught it from, had a hard time cutting it in pieces, my reflex was: ‘get me some, and not cut into pieces please…’
I got the delivery, and, indeed, saw that it was all kinds of harwood, scrap from some woodworking firm.
Most was Wengé, and I made my design according to the wood I had.
I’m really glad with it, even if it’s not perfectly made, it’s made with love.
