Woodworker: Ken Wirtz
Wirtz’s corner cabinet was inspired by 18th-century examples he spied in Wallace Nutting’s expansive volume Furniture Treasury (MacMillan, 1954). The pine cabinet, which stands 23 in. deep by 56 in. wide by 85 in. tall, is painted. Wirtz first applied a mustard base coat, then used both combing and rag-rolling techniques to achieve different decorative effects on the sage-green interior and brown exterior. The 27 panes of glass in the door and sides were salvaged from old windows.
