This is what we made from an empty crate:
Our inspiration for this first piece.
The amazing designer Katie Stout. Guess where her jewelry came from?
Laminating the walnut strips to make the solid shelf. Never a shortage of fine tools here at the workshop!
We did not have the luxury of hardware. So I made the sliding panels operate by recessing two channels into the walnut top & bottom rails.
The acrylic from the crate, cut out with a CNC machine. Three layers where used to make the top.
Beautiful walnut from the crate we used for the shelf and surround
Staging our piece prior to the judging
A lousy photograph, however gives you an idea of the finished result - all from a crate :)
