Walnut wall cabinet with unusual door panels

Built to hold media in an office in which I had built a desk and credenza. The panel material is from a company called 3form. The small light colored pieces are bamboo, embedded in an acrylic-like translucent field. 3form claims it is environmentally friendly stuff. It is pretty, engaging, and the colors blended real well with both heartwood and sapwood walnut which were present in the larger pieces. The 4×8 sheet of this stuff was about $1000 landed at my shop.

Thank you for the kind words. I was particularly pleased with the way the subtle grain lines flow through the diagonal stiles.

Great design. Really like the panels. The $1000 would be a bit hard to handle though. At least that included shipping.

Nice cabinet. How was the 3 form to work with? I have a client that is debating using it on some projects.

Is this something to keep or you planning on selling it?

This little guy was sold to the client who commissioned the desk.

re: working with the product, it was easy. I comes with protective film both sides (and it has A and B sides, but I could never tell the diff) and cuts cleanly, not brittly like polystyrene.

The neatest thing about it is that it’s like nothing else. Instant uniqueness to your piece.
