Case URL:

It is based on a late 19th century china cabinet by Eugene Gaillard, one of the great designers of the Art Nouveau movement. It is made of solid cherrywood as well as cherry veneer, except for the Alphonse Mucha graphic on the side which is entirely inlaid holly, purpleheart, ebony, and maple burl. You may recognize her as the Job rolling paper girl, though I took away her smoke and handed her a mouse. With her wrist bent like that she is just asking for carpal tunnel problems, but she looks good doing it. The french doors over the drives are sandblasted glass. I carved the handles for those and the carved doors below - 'Power' by opening the one on the right and 'Reset' on the left - out of jeweler's wax and, after a few stitches in my left paw after a nasty slip with an Exacto knife, had them cast in brass with an antique finish. The faceplates on the three drives - CD, DVD burner, and floppy - were replaced with ones of solid cherry. I have a pet peeve with cases that are bolted shut like a submarine hatch, so the thing is easy open: no screws, just careful joinery so it just snaps open and closed."


Each door pulls open .5cm...
