Over the past few weeks I have been making a cabinet to display the charms whilst they are not in use. I spoke about it earlier in the blog but referred to it as more of a press box.
Having spoken to Malcolm in the work shop for advice he told me to look at the work of a Russian Cabinet maker, James Krenov. This book helped me design the joints, style and wood for the cabinet.
From the designs we decided to use reclaimed birch pine from an old school bench. It has a light and dark grain that is a reddish brown, we felt it would compliment the silvery colour of the charms.
