This is a project my husband and I worked together on. Steve and I have two workshops – his and hers. His is all wood shop and mine is CO2 laser.
We reproduced the Chrysler building elevator door pattern for the upper doors and for the small drop door, we reproduced the interior design of the same elevator. The doors are inlaid with many species of wood veneers and some of the other fine details are hand painted.
We used the CO2 laser for the design on the doors and they are baltic birch ply. The rest of the cabinet was done in our wood shop and is made from black walnut with beautiful finger joints.
