5 degree walnut cabinets

 

synopsis

An individual, with a very sharp eye for details, approached me with a sketch for a wall concept that he wanted custom made.

After spending some time refining the design, the angle of 5 degrees emerged as a guiding principle. 

Special custom jigs were constructed for drilling at 5 degrees - all shelves have been doweled. 

The assembly of these cabinets was very demanding.
