Cockle shell cabinet

100_0111This cockle shell cabinet was made for Baywood interiors who installed it at a St. Francis of Assisi school.

Constructed of solid oak the cockle shell is 5 feet wide and 30 inches deep and weight several hundred pounds when completed.  The carving required almost 250 board the of 2 inch thick red oak.  The project required a week of lamination and two weeks of carving by hand before the construction of the rest of the bent wood cabinet.  Photos of the cockle shell can be seen on Baywood interiors website in there portfolio section at http://baywoodinteriors.com/st-francis-assisi-catholic-school-innisfil/.  Here is the You tube link to the construction.  https://youtu.be/fLvAPrdzkDM
