PRODUCT STORY
Peter says: This cabinet is a quintessential example of my design process. I was simply experimenting with off-center turning on the lathe when I ended up with something that reminded me an awful lot like a bird's leg. Simultaneously, I had a floating idea for a Krenov-style cabinet floating around in my head as well as a gorgeous piece of maple which I had been staring at for months. When the "legs" emerged from the lathe, I had the "Ah Ha!" moment and knew I had to make a two-legged free-standing cabinet. From there, it was one design-on-the-fly decision after the next. The "legs" give way to bent laminated "necks" which swoop up the side of the cabinet to hold it in place. I left the natural edge "inclusion" in the doors to accentuate the naturalistic feel of the piece. The knobs for the doors and drawer are a soft finish to insinuate the animated character. As with many of my pieces, my aim is to evoke that smile (or giggle) which one can hardly help when looking at it.

When I was little, my mom read me stories about Baba Yega who lived in a house with legs. This reminds me of fairy tales. Beautiful work!
