Marcel Daigneault from Conestoga College –“Liquor Cabinet”

Black walnut, maple, quilted maple veneer, Danish oil and bee’s wax

“I was inspired by prohibition style liquor cabinets where the cabinet was used to conceal the contents inside. Using Michael Fortune’s laminated door technique, the doors were created using a form in the vacuum press. The cabinet is finished with Danish oil and bee’s wax.” (Photo by Antonia Goga)
