Showcase # 2 Glass Cabinet in Oak
This glass cabinet was custom designed and built by Ottawa based woodworker Jacques Breau. As with all of his work, it exhibits incredible quality of craftsmanship. Jacques often likes to set himself specific technical challenges in his work, and this piece was born out of his desire to put flat glass in a curved cabinet. The wood that was used in this glass cabinet lent itself well to a symmetrical design, and as such, directed the design process.
Materials: English brown oak is the principal material used in this glass cabinet, as well as eastern maple and Norway maple. The Brazilian species imbuya is also incorporated into the design.
Dimensions: 11.75″ h x 23.75″ l x 8.25″ w
