When I have a good client, I don’t mind going the extra mile for them. This is a unit that has been in my mind for years and I decided to do for this client. It is one of the best that I have made.
It is made from recycled Ipil and salvaged Narra. The Narra came from a tree that was damaging a friends house.
It has a lacquer and beeswax finish. The unit is 2400 mm long by 550mm deep and 900mm high (1900mm high with shelves).
The drawers and doors are push to open and soft close. The back is Ipil Panel. All shelves rails etc. are sliding dovetails.
I made it so that the shelves and TV stand can be lifted off and then the unit can be a standard buffet.
I named it Easter Island because the shelves look a bit like the Easter Island statues and also because they have no timber there.
