Woodworker: Tom Cowan

Cowan collaborated with artist Kelly Torreano to create this corner cabinet, blending his woodworking skill with her passion for gardening and painting. Although he has been commissioned to do many exact reproductions, Cowan decided to have fun and experiment with this gift for his wife, which has both formal Dunlap elements (an influential family of New England furniture makers from the 18th century) and floral painting. The poplar cabinet, 22 in. deep by 43 in. wide by 87 in. tall, is finished with latex paints and acrylic artist's paints and is top-coated with lacquer. From Fine Woodworking #203 Photo: Tom Church
