Wine Cabinet of Hickory & Mahogany

 
 

Lots going on in this concept piece of Hickory, Honduras Mahogany (horizontal lines), Ash (legs) and Wenge for the Buhl diamond inlay (underside of top). Ash was chosen for legs as I was unable to locate straight-grained Hickory in suitable lengths. Two dovetailed cases float between the six legs. Cleats rest in leg notches and are pinned (fixed in front, slotted in rear) and slide into stopped, housed dovetail sockets routed in the underside of the top. None of these elements are glued to allow wood movement front to back. Horizontal and small vertical divider in large case also used housed dovetails. Cases attach to legs with stub and floating tenons. Tom Buhl’s personal info, graphics, photography, design information plus e-mail may be found at www.tombuhl.com.
