The carcass of this cellarette was made using reclaimed mahogany and sapelle. The base, shelving, and hardware are all made of steel. The wood was salvaged from a variety of places, including some from a sinker log from the Amazon River, some from an outdoor patio deck from Eastern Long Island NY, and some was sourced from local Brooklyn wood shops. The wood's natural coloring shows off warm tones ranging from red and maroon to light and mid brown, with some paler colors interspersed (there is no stain involved).
As with my vessels, the cabinet has been hand-built, stacked piece by piece, layer by layer, creating a one of a kind pattern which achieves a quality reminiscent of mosaic tile work, basketry, and pottery. The completed form's exterior is staggered in depth creating terraced contours which catch shadows and light in a visually pleasing way; while the interior was left smooth highlighting the wood's natural differences.
The steel base has leveling feet. The shelves are in fixed positions and therefore not adjustable.
