This Studio Tupla collaboration came about following receipt of the gift of yellow cedar from a friend and fellow woodworker in British Columbia. The beautiful, precious plank was from an old growth timber as can be seen in the numerous tightly-spaced grain lines.

Two cotton runners were specifically designed and handwoven for this piece by Carol, also of Studio Tupla, and are included in the price of the piece. Of course, custom handwoven runners for any season or occasion are available upon request. For further information regarding custom textiles, click on the “Request Purchasing Info” button below.

Tempered glass shelves were introduced into the design to protect the wood and textiles during the day-to-day use of the cabinet. Oil-tanned leather provides a soft landing spot for the glass shelves. Shelf supports are made from hand carved Honduran mahogany with brass pins. The cabinet is fastened to the mahogany stand with shop-made brass brackets.

The two hand cut dovetail drawers are made from deodar cedar. Native to the Himalayan region, this particular plank had been grown and harvested in Vancouver, British Columbia. The drawer fronts are made from mahogany, and feature hand-carved pulls.

This piece was awarded “Best-in-Show” at the 2019 Northern Woods Exhibition in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
