Sculpt cabinet

Sculpt cabinet was done in clear Monterrey Pine and I made the wooden hinges from Tambotie (Spirostachus Africana). Unfortunately the picture doesn’t show it clearly but all external surfaces have a sculpted wavy finish. This was done with an angle grinder fitted with a coarse sanding disc, rasps and spoke shave, followed by MANY hours of sanding.

Very nice, Div. Is it large, the size of a wardrobe? Or a tabletop cabinet for CDs? Hard to tell with no frame of reference for size. I like the sculpting you’ve done, and I believe every word of “Many hours of sanding.”

Div your work is magnificent. If I have the good fortune of going to Mossel Bay I will pay you a visit.

@barbs: Oops, sorry I guess I should have given dimensions. It was built as a cocktail cabinet. I work in those strange little units called millimetres, so let me convert to inches…..Height 51” width 24” depth 13”
@Cher : Thanks and you are most welcome. I think you will like my shop. Come with a bakkie so I can give you some wood.

I really like your unique design and I love how the grain flows. Is the interior done in black or is that just the picture? Great Job.

Very natural looking cabinet. As if the wood chose what it wanted.

Saw your recent posting regarding your show. Best of luck. This piece is Krenov-esk!

I’m doing some blogging re The studio furniture movement. Krenov was an excellent writer and artist/craftsman. There are several books by him. He lived for the wood, and advocated for the work. You can Google him and maybe it can give you some picture examples. He has passed on. Pritney and Ames have an excellent history re: studio furniture as well. http://www.pritameames.com/index.html
