New Furniture 2012 (Part 1) : Gas Station Cabinets

- ESC025 -
 I've been making a lot of new furniture this year, keep watching the blog over the next few days to view some new work...
These two pieces (ESC025 / ESC024) sideboard/locker units are made with plywood, steel and vintage gas station numbers.
The salvaged plywood was reclaimed from a building site in London where it was used as hoarding for years. It has been refinished and waxed and sits on a lacquered raw steel box section base. The doors are made from sections of vintage American gas station number signs. The doors are fitted with push-catches rather than handles. Both cabinets are built to the same size but carry different numbers.
