This past summer was the “Summer of Armoires”. 4 pieces commissioned by the same client. This particular piece is made from wenge with maple accents. The design was something the client found in a South African furniture catalog. It proved to be a very interesting project. Working with that much wenge was no fun at all, but the final product made it worth it. Oh and cutting sheet steel was no picnic either!
This unit is definitely NOT everyone’s cup of tea. But as a furniture builder, sometimes you need to remove your own opinion from the equation. So I cant say that I dont “like” the piece. But I can say you would never see it in my house. :)
