Storage for 20 DVD’s. Made from recycled and scrap lumber plus discarded hardwood flooring samples. Species used are maple, spalted maple, cherry, red oak, jatoba, and acacia. The legs are from the skids of a crate and resemble teak, but I don’t think so – usual suspects include iroko, afromosia, aiele, cumaru, afzelia(doussie), andiroba, and chamfuta.The challenge, for me, is allowing the materials to dictate the design and execution while making changes and modifications on the fly. An example of that is the horizontal door slates, which are spalted maple with knots and dark streaks. By laying out and cutting all that I had, I discovered what size the door would have to be, but then it seemed that the same material should wrap up over the top, so I pulled the last bits of scrap from the scrap and sawed 3/32”thick veneer strips to cover the top. When I was done with that, nothing was left but the sawdust, so no more bright ideas. The legs came from two slightly dissimilar 2×3’s and in the rough state, I picked the best two for the front legs, but after the finish was on, it was apparent that the back legs were the best looking, so I had to live with that.
