We just had our grand opening of Soulcraft Gallery – a gallery of Cleveland-based furniture designers and artisans. I had a few sleepless nights finishing this retail work island for the opening.
The base is in Cherry. Its a basic cherry-ply case, with solid cherry 1/4” complementary triangles. I got the design idea by accident from a series of angled dados I created for another piece of furniture (I’ll post later…).
The top is maple. We have a great resource here in Cleveland – Cleveland Metro Hardwoods. Anytime they clear-cut for development they just drop off the logs to CMH instead of mulching or tossing them into the landfill. He flitch cuts them and sells ‘em cheap!
The final picture is the work island in place at the Gallery. There are 12 furniture designers who are presently showing: including both metal and woodworkers (and a true blacksmith!).
