I recently completed a media piece for Andi and Al, two great people that have given me all kinds of fun projects over the past 5 years. Their only request was something minimal that could hold a Bose sound dock on top and a cable box inside. I eventually came up with this design that includes a copper exterior slider door.
I first made the body with solid black walnut. It’s the first time I’ve used this Hafele slider door hardware for the interior door and I really like how it works and looks.
I designed the doors so that a solid walnut door slides freely on the interior, and a perforated copper door slides along the top and bottom. I got inspiration for the copper from a Tom Dixon lamp Al and Andi recently added to their living space. I wanted one of the doors to be semi-transparent for remote access and the perforated door does this nicely.
It’s difficult to see from this angle, but I added a slight angle to the legs to give it a subtle illusion of the cabinet falling over to the left. The wood was hand rubbed with a new oil I’ve been using that comes in Gel form from General’s, and it works amazing.Thanks again to Andi and Al for giving me free reign to make this. It was a super fun piece to make and I’m really happy with how everything turned out.
