W276- Japanese-Inspired Armoire
Time spent observing architecture in Japan influenced the design of this armoire, which has spacers between the case and the top and bottom that make it appear to float. The walnut veneer offered plenty of challenges. “The crotch was air-dried for three years and the veneers were cut by a homemade pit saw,” Wiener said. “I experienced the entire process from harvest and curing to cutting and adhering.”
