Cabinet from Cherry

I quickly fell in love with this cherrywood from Bunnik (Utrecht) that was gifted to me after one of my many beautiful internships.
That wood was all that I used to make this piece of fine furniture. No nails, screws, bolts or metal hinges.
Glue, gravity and friction was all I needed to join the parts strongly, while still allowing the wood to expand and contract.
I became inspired by the subtelty and simplicity of the Japanese woodworking art, the masterly Cabinets of James Krenov and the old techniques I learned from Arno Klafsvel (meubelatelier Momentum).
This is a high quality piece, made to be used and cherished for a long time, where the natural qualities of the wood are not conquered, but utilized and honored.
