The brief for this project was to build a contemporary floating wall to wall media unit. The client also wanted the timber to match the existing floor. A simple, clean series of melamine cabinets complimented by stained American Oak doors with shaped solid handles completed the design. French cleats utilised to hang the cabinets from the wall to give its floating appearance.
Built from 7 boards of the same tree, these elm boards came from a storm damaged tree in the Ballincollig area of Cork. The brief was simply to sit 8-10 people and to have a vernacular Irish feel. I opted for a Refectory style design as this was popular throughout our countries medieval past and is perfect for larger groups if needed. The overall design also allowed the 3-board top to speak for itself.
The brief for this box was to construct a presentation box for a families war medals. Two trays to hold two branches of the families different war medals were made to fit inside, each lined with green felt and each with a clear removable Perspex cover. Constructed using traditional joinery methods such as dovetails on the case and bridle joints on the framed lid.
