Title -Ruby Tiq Cabinet

Material -Walnut frame, Satinwood & Walnut burl.

Dimensions -18″ wide x 16″ deep x 46″ high (46 cm x 41 cm x 117 cm)

About the piece -Torah cabinet with back-illuminated front door inlaid stone panel depicting a pomegranate and leaf motif. The cabinet is crested by a Walnut Burl and Satinwood tiara with ruby gems set in gold findings. The casework is constructed with Baltic birch, three ply veneer on both sides, solid satinwood and walnut made to tight tolerances (.010”) was the easy part. Some of the challenges in the designing phase was to find a way to push a tremendous amount of light through the stone to illuminate it like stained glass, (400 LED lights), not have any visible power source supplying the electricity to the door, (from the floor of the cabinet up through the hinges) and sturdy enough to tolerate the door being slammed shut, not breaking the fragile stone (custom torsion box door, on a curve). As you see from the pics, the curved casework had to be well planned to execute this ‘using every clamp in town’ Gorilla glue-up at it’s best!

Paul's path as a furniture maker started when he was young, after moving to Europe in order to search out and learn skills from world trade masters. During his different apprenticeships, his teachers noted my aptitude in finding elegant solutions in resolving esthetic and mechanical issues, thinking three steps ahead, and the ability to keep the broad picture in his mind while doing the fine detail work.
