Early 16th Century Gothic Hutch

New Zealand grown Sycamore (Orinoco, Nelson) was the timber used to produce this hutch. Again, the piece was commissioned by discerning clients with an eye for detail. Care was taken to faithfully reproduce the piece with just one small change – two double doors. These doors are each solid sycamore with a scallop-carved back relief. This method ensures a sense of lightness is achieved in the carving. Overall the effect of this pierced carving is that of fine and careful detail, but one that still exudes strength.

It must be noted that discipline is an essential attribute to any cabinet maker attempting this style of carving. Thanks again Mum and Dad for instilling that in me!
