I built this credenza for a client in Joshua Tree. He wanted this piece to compliment certain characteristics of his Moroccan style house built back in the 60's. Much of the plywood body is from scraps of plywood saved up from past projects. Read Less

THE IPE CLASP
I EMULATED A MOROCCAN JALI SCREEN FOR THE TWO DOORS. THERE ARE FOUR THIN LAYERS OF IPE ABOUT 1/16" THICK, BACKED BY AN MDF CORE.  EACH LAYER OF THE IPE, AND ITS GRAIN IS DIRECTED A DIFFERENT WAY MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR THE INTRICATE DETAIL NEEDED WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE STRENGTH AND INTEGRITY.
The Monroe was a credenza I originally designed and built for a clients home in Joshua Tree. It was a Moroccan style house that was built back in the early sixties, and he really wanted me to emulate some of the details of the house into this piece.
