The first of two cabinets a set intended for a sunny kitchen setting. This one intended for possibly storing spices and beverages. The second will be an open design for plants or a bookshelf.
The interesting story behind these cabinets is the lumber which came from a beautiful twenty eight inch Birch, cut and sawed in Three Lakes, Wisconsin. I had driven by this tree at the end of our driveway for thirty years and never really noticed it. When it was time for it to come down for a garage addition a local sawyer created a nice variety of widths and thicknesses. Our neighbor Bruce Renquist, a designer himself, from Racine, WI. did some sketches for some benches and a table. After some good old fashioned horse trading, he had his furniture and I had six hundred board feet of lumber.
