Tapered Cattail: black walnut and Brusso stainless hardware 51″h x 15 3/4″w x 13 1/2″d. $4000
The Tapered Cattail cabinet was given its name thanks to an observation from someone who remarked that the integrated door pull and vertical reveal looked like a cattail. I agreed. Similar in the following regard to my Tapered sideboard, the Tapered Cattail (and Display) cabinets taper slightly inward reducing in overall width as you travel up its height. The haunched joints of the lower rails where they connect with the legs are a subtle detail, conveying a look of strength and accentuating the unique stance of the piece when combined with the inside taper of the legs towards the floor. The cabinet door has dovetailed battens on its backside for ensured flatness and pivots on fine Brusso stainless knife hinges. One dovetailed drawer is housed under a top fixed shelf with an adjustable shelf below.
