This is the one and only cabinet work I have done and intend to never do again until I have a staff of more than 3 people. 7ft high, 8ft wide, 2ft deep, ebonized walnut (I really disliked doing that to walnut) and honey birch interior. This project was the reason I moved to my third shop with higher ceilings. I started this one in a basement with only 8.5ft ceilings, but it fell on me as I was moving it and gave me a hernia. Yay. My biggest mistake was the European style hinges I used.. mis calculated and they only open to 85 degrees… nothing I could do.. but learn to really plan hardware into the overall design.
The client lived in a huge loft and needed a room divider for the office area. I customized front slides so the doors open both directions.. The giant object comes apart into 5 pieces, but we still had to remove the kitchen windows to get it into the 3rd floor loft space.
