Bader Art Metal & Fabrication was contracted by a highly skilled wood craftsman to build several proper stands for some high end cabinets.
The pieces you see pictured below are the fruits of that collaboration…a smattering of 14 and 16 gauge square and rectangular tubing, TIG welded, then finish ground, sanded and blended with a multitude of abrasives.
A wet burnished, layered patina was applied to bring a depth to the pieces, subtly revealing different tones and hues under varying light conditions, much in the same manner as the stunning santos rosewood cabinets themselves refract the light. A robust lacquer finishes off the bases, with one of the two receiving an additional tinted wax.
The price estimate below is only for the cabinet base. The dresser was fabricated by the talented woodworker Mark Cwik of Mark Cwik Studio Furniture, who is also a Custom Made Maker.
