This cabinet was created for two special friends that have started collecting vinyl, and wanted something to contain their collection. They decided on walnut for the wood, and I chose a frame style that was inspired by Le Corbusier’s chair designs.
The piece was intentionally designed to be simple, with little to no embellishments. A single leather strap gives access to the inside of the container.
This bench was an interesting challenge! The client wanted a light colored slab that would contrast her darker floors. Luckily, a local Houston wood supplier had a great piece of maple that was suited to the task. We went with a cobalt colored epoxy and used a more opaque blue tint to allow the color to stand out against the light colored wood. Due to the 96″ length of the board, 4 trapezoid legs were fabricated to stabilize the piece and provide enough support to stand on if needed. The bench was finished with seven coats of wipe on poly.
