chris funnell red acrylic wenge cabinet

Darwin jewellery box

Bubinga, vavona burr veneer, rippled sycamore and suede.

A very complicated piece; the lid is made in four quarters and the joined together. It is a double curvature and is very dificult to get the thin veneers to bend in both ways.


Rippled maple and linen upholstered seat.

Chris has experimented here with laminated back slats and twisted side rails. The rail needs to change plane as it goes toward the rear legs which orientate inwards.


Two-way table, curly maple veneer, maple and acrylic.

Here Chris has mixed acrylic and veneer sheet material to produce a table that can be used landscape or portrait.
