This is a china cabinet my father and I made for my sister and brother-in-law back in 2005. It’s hard to beleive it has been 5 years already since we worked on this project. We used redoak, red oak plywood and copper for the patina top. This was the first project I did experimenting with copper patina. I learned this technique from David Marks' Woodworks show that was on DIY several years ago. The fourth picture shows the assembly diagram I used. The 5th picture is a rendering from a 3D modeling program – formZ. I use a combination of autocad and formZ during the design process for most of my more comlicationed pieces. The final picture shows the detail of the transition piece between the lower cabinet and upper cabinet.

Looking back at my photo records this tooka bout 6 months to complete, working on weekends. The copper patina process takes about 2-3 weeks.
