Woodworker: Benoit ChasséInspired by an old Victorian building in Montreal, Benoit Chassé originally built this piece (9-3/4 in. deep by 52-3/8 in. wide by 43 in. tall) to store 450 cassette tapes. The accordianstyle doors opened just under the balconies and exposed sliding storage. When technology made the tape storage unnecessary, Chassé cut the depth in half (not an easy feat) and turned the piece into sculpture. The woods are mahogany, white pine, and cherry, and the finish is stain and acrylic paint.
