These pieces, collectively called Bauden, are united by the same method of construction. In this work, I played with layering, and the push and pull of the corners. In cabinetry, this characteristic interplay is called tabling, one of my favorite subtleties of the craft.

Bauden comes from an old familial name, an elegant word which to me evokes mountains, and a sense of things that are grounded and lasting.
