This bespoke Luna 2 sideboard was built in Melbourne to complement the original Luna. Its purpose is to welcome guests into the home with the warmth of handmade craftsmanship.
The clients were looking for a piece that didn't intimidate or loom monstrous as you enter the house, but instead calmly welcome with the promise of quality and care.
In this particular version, there are no handmade touches left behind. It has hand cut dovetails on the carcase and drawers. The drawer sides are American oak, in keeping with the American theme, and run on handmade runners made from the same timber.
Solid American walnut is used throughout, including the back and drawer bottoms. These are often neglected, common as a sort of afterthought in cabinet design, but we decided to focus on the furniture as a holistic piece, every surface working towards a common goal.
The shelves are adjusted via handmade shelf adjusters. These are handmade, chiselled from offcuts from the carcase to provide a bespoke touch to the sideboard.
Hinges are top of the range, black onyx Blum, with the soft close feature inherent.
