I was asked to make something that can house the sheet-music and music books for a customer. Their space has a very asian feel and they also wanted it to be about bench-height, because they like to have family gather around the piano and sing (this piece will sit next to their piano under a window).
Under the top are two filing drawers with six removable solid wood dividers where they can keep their sheet music. On each side of these drawers are selves that face out to the side, for them to put their books. Each shelf has a built-in book-end.
The top and shelves are Dalmatia wood (which is an odd wood to work with); the cabinet carcass and stretchers are walnut; the legs are maple; and the drawer fronts are book-matched spalted maple (the “missing” part of these drawer fronts are natural edges – not sure if it worked or not aesthetically).
And and all comments welcome!
