Woodworker: Johnny Williams
“The instructor’s rules said to keep it small, solid, simple, and sweet,” Williams says, describing this wall cabinet (7-1/8-in. deep by 26-1/4-in. wide by 7-7/8-in. tall). “To those, I added my own requirements: to work only with native species and shape curves by hand.” The cabinet is claro walnut, bay laurel, and maple, with a shellac finish. “The College of the Redwoods is such a welcome change of pace,” Williams said. “We know fast won’t last, so we slow down and build real, durable furniture.”
