Gables record cabinet

This cabinet is another piece made with Christine Meyer-Eaglestone. Created for a collector in London the design was a true collaboration. The customer had strong views about dimension and proportion which Christine took into consideration in the design while I added some practical considerations.

The carcase is walnut and maple while the doors are marquetry decorated both inside and out, the maple elements and the doors have an applied ebony stringing that sets off the design elements. The door is overlaid on the front of the cabinet with no hinging evident when it is closed, it is held gently by a hide magnetic catch. All in all a quite unique piece of furniture.
