Exmouth again

140221a-153

Exmouth was a great place to live and work – but after 5 or 6 years, it started to wer you down.  Isolation from interesting people and places, music, food, shows…

But I did learn a thing or two about wood work.  A couple of the guys I worked with were keen woodworkers – they kind of got me going.  It was also where I started to acquire proper wood working tools.  One of the lessons I learned (after making this piece) is that it is worth using good timber.  This was made mostly from recycled ply and scrap aluminium.

This ‘Chinese Cabinet’ holds wine in two of the three doors – the rest is storage.  The inlays are (allegedly) Chinese characters for Happiness, Health and Prosperity.  What else would you put on a booze cabinet?
