This cabinet, original to the building (1910) and salvaged from another unit, had to be modified to accomodate a concrete column on the right-hand side. Most of the side of the hutch and cabinet had to be cut-out and the right drawer had to be narrowed. By leaving the drawer face unchanged and painting the column white, I was able to minimize the visual impact of the changes. The wood that was removed was repurposed to create the pull-out work space.
Pirate Treasure Chest
Just in time for a pirate themed baby shower it's "Baby's First Treasure Chest". The young lady's last name is painted on the front with a pirate ship painted on either side. A slow close feature was added to prevent baby's first severe finger contusion. The latch is a compass rose design cut from a sheet of brass. That piece, as well as the brass corner accents came from a much uglier chest found on a curb in our neighborhood. Someday that chest may become a dog bed.
