About Clay

Cathedral Liquor Cabinet, Black Walnut

April 2020

This 5 week build was comisssioned by a client looking for a solid wood, handmade, gothic inspired liquor cabinet to complement their early 20th century Adobe Home in Phoenix, Arizona.

Between the 12th and 16th century, gothic architecture was at its peak. Every component of a cathedral  built in this period was hand crafted with a level of care and precision that is rare to find in our common era. This build was an opportunitity for Clay to practice craftsmanship on his largest scale yet.

Design Constraints:

Only Table Saw & Band Saw
Solid hardwood
Gothic architecture influence
Ample storage
Bar top
85x75x25 inches

Handrawn Orhtographic plans [Above] Includes Glass cabinet, wine bottle and glass rack, mug pegs, drawers, cupboards, and bar top.

The build started as over 1000 sqft of raw black walnut.
