I designed these cabinets based on the clients’ desire to incorporate salvaged glass and hardware from a family home. The ends of the cabinets are built with long miters to show quartersawn grain on adjacent sides. Hinges and knobs are from full-size doors in the family’s original Tudor Revival house on the outskirts of Indianapolis. The salvaged glass wall tile was painstakingly cleaned and installed by the general contractor on the project, Gilbert Construction.
This double-sided cabinet offers a variety of storage options, accommodating large items in the bottom drawer, magnetic and cork display surfaces, and a microwave housed behind a flip-up door. Basket maker Linda Boyle Gibson made the baskets in the pull-outs for onions and potatoes.
