Wall Cabinet in Tiger Maple
Clark Kellogg’s small cabinet in FWW magazine really caught my eye. I had a piece of tiger maple in the racks that was looking for a purpose. I had imagined using it for something of a larger scale but, I think it found a good home in this piece inspired by Clark’s wonderful design.
Tiger maple, walnut and ebony for the showy parts. The back is made from maple frame parts and birch panels. The joinery combines traditional and modern, hand cut and machined. The finish is shellac with a bit of varnish for the ebony pulls and surrounding area where fingers may rub over the years.
Directly inspired by Clark Kellogg's cabinet. A gift for my wife a couple of years ago.
One of the design elements that really stuck with me was Clark's use of a floating panel back that tracked the shapes of other elements within the cabinet.
A fun piece that let me try some interesting solutions to common joinery requirements.
Again, taken directly from Clark, knife hinges and dominoes. Many thanks for the inspirational piece. We have really enjoyed having it in our home.
