Another challenge I had to take.
When asked if I could design and built a spice chest to fit into a narrow space between a doorframe and a windowsill, I of course said yes! Building a spice chest is pretty easy, but how to make it look different and interesting was the challenge.
For this I borrowed from the Asian Print stands serpentine spindles and used this concept to make a door. As you move across the room, the door changes shape slightly and goes from water like ripple to full slats that give an idea of what is inside.
Worked out well using red oak and shellac finish, and most importantly moved the spices from hiding in the cupboard to be easily reachable while saving cupboard space.
