Woodworker: Rachel Brydolf-Horwitz

Brydolf-Horwitz calls this hanging wall cabinet her "calligraphy cabinet," because after all the design and construction was complete, she stepped back and realized it reminded her of Asian calligraphy characters. She designed the white-oak cabinet (9 in. deep by 40 in. wide by 30 in. tall) for a carcase construction class at the Vermont Woodworking School and used some of the techniques she had learned there in its construction: tapered bent lamination to produce the curved top, and sliding dovetails to join the top to the case sides. The drawer pull is walnut and the finish is shellac. Photo: Jeff Clarke
