Jewellery Display Cabinets:
My Client wanted a bespoke solution for displaying his hand-made jewellery.
The brief was to design a display cabinet with six square feet of display area. I came up with a couple of designs, both using oak and steel predominantly. The first design would feature a large display window of 90cm square with three shelves for displaying his work. A rear door would allow access to replenish stock.
The second design again used three shelves with the advantage of all the items being visible from 360 degrees with the same display area and opening door at the rear to add/remove stock.
My client wished to go ahead with the first design as it suited his requirements better than the square option.
A total of three pieces were commissioned.
30mm angled steel was used to create the frames with 6mm toughened glass set into the front. Solid oak was used all round. I suggested retaining the natural edge of the oak for the shelves to add some visual interest.
Lockable doors were fitted to the back. the steel was protected with a clear lacquer and the oak two coats of tung oil and two coats of hard wax oil will keep these pieces looking great for years to come.
