This project is heavily influenced by the works of David Marks. I’ve learned much of what I know about woodworking from his TV show “Wood Works” that ran 6 seasons on DIY. I also had the good fortune and the opportunity to take a guilding and chemical patination class at his studio while I was working on this furniture.
I incorporated a fair amount of copper into this furniture. The wires for the A/V gear can be routed through holes I bored in the backsides of the schedule L copper pipe that I used as columns in the A/V racks. Those pipes were treated with a hot patina. The panels in the doors and drawer fronts are gilded with copper leaf and treated with a cold patina.
