W276- Maple and Cherry Caddy
Barfield’s caddy went through many iterations before it evolved into the design you see here. It started as a rectangular box with a handle, sized to hold silverware, correspondence, or other items. Each time Barfield made it, he added details—the scroll-cut handhold, the angled partitions, the tapered box sides. “It’s hardest to design something simple and usable that hasn’t already been done hundreds of times,” he said.
