The second in a series, these cabinets where inspired by the cook in me, the first, a pantry cabinet storing cooking spices and bottles. The second cabinet, similar in form, intended as a home to a kitchen herb garden. The open design features a trellis theme and glass shelves allowing light to penetrate. The material, harvested from a single Birch tree from a neighbors land in Three Lakes, WI, has now yielded its sixth piece of furniture. I find myself wondering how to express my gratitude to a tree other than ensuring that it lives on.
