Measures 1350mm high, 800mm wide, 520mm deep. I made this cabinet as one of my final class projects last year. The brief was to incorporate an alternate material (in my case steel) and design aspects from the Gothic style or a bridge. I managed to fit all that in and also to play with Chinese cabinet door hinges (pins) that allow the doors to be removed when open, and a hidden compartment.
The steel work was designed by me and made by a local fabricator and cost me a couple hundred including powder coating.
Timber is pine, with Kauri ply panels. This construction kept it quite light.
I’d been itching all year to use the Blaze Red stain and this piece really glows with the depth of colour. A matt lacquer spray topped it off.
This is one piece I’ll keep with me for life. I really love how it came out.
