Hokkaido cabinet

Made in Japanese oak that was transported from Hokkaido port to Liverpool docks post WW2, the boards still had the stamps on them! Joe’s final project, an ambitious cabinet, has an outside that is shot-blasted then ebonised, whilst the inside is finished in white Osmo. The back panel is Japanese paper which is illuminated by an LED light panel.
