Kevin Mack Fine Furniture at Wood Expo 2012Comments (0)
During last year’s WoodExpo 2011 at the New England Home Show, we featured a blog on Kevin Mack Fine Furniture. Kevin is located in Malden, Massachusetts and can also be found online at
www.kevinmackfinefurniture.net. The Mack attack is back at the 2012 show with 5 new fantastic entries showing off his creativity and woodworking expertise. The main goal for all 5 pieces was to create 3 color tones in each piece.
Kevin’s 3rd piece is a Pagoda Cabinet with Asian aesthetics made with walnut and a saved “firewood” burl built with the philosophy of Yin and Yang or opposite styles in mind. The swing doors have 2 pieces of glass with copper foil in between. In addition the top bread board cut ends are made from one piece of air dried walnut. Again note the 3 color tones making up this cabinet.
Kevin’s chair also has a 3 color tone style with white oak, cherry and the added leather tone for the back and seat cushions.
The 5th piece may be used multi-functionally as a foot or sitting stool. The 3 tone colors designed into this sturdy item are mahogany, white oak with a Danish corded wrapped top. As shown in the video, Kevin learned to make this corded weave with the assistance of The Caner’s Handbook from Woodcraft.
