The first piece of furniture I built after studying machining and woodworking for 5 months at Laney College. The piece showcases a 2” butcher block at the top, with mortice and tenons underneath serving as aprons. The base, created from bay laurel from salvaged wood from the presidio purchased at Arborica in Marine and milled from one tree. The piece is set with dovetails and then rabbited in the cypress slats to complete the 2 tiered shelving.
