Winner of Excellence in Student Design – Decorator Furniture

Utile Mahogany was steamed, bent and laminated with epoxy to make two symmetrical tops. The drawer and drawer carcass was made with European Beech and handmade Utile Mahogany Plywood panels. Traditional joinery was included in this piece, with eight Japanese 3-way mitres to construct the two drawer carcases and hand cut dovetails to construct the drawers that run on custom timber dovetail runners. To finish off this self design project, the handles are custom shaped to flow with the curves and bends of the piece.
