Small red Oak, 2 drawer chest on frame with turned cabriole legs. The request was for a small coffee bar that didn’t look like office furniture.

This is something that came along pretty early for me.  I had a request for a piece of office furniture, “someplace for my coffee and things”, that didn’t look like office furniture.

So this is a Queen Anne-style chest on frame.  A sideboard of sorts, coming in at about 32 inches wide and under 16 inches deep.

Dark stained red oak with maple dovetailed drawers. The two drawers provided enough space to hold the necessary paraphernalia to become properly caffeinated and the size was a perfect fit in the office setting.

This was the first of many of these adaptations of another style to fit a particular purpose or space.
