Brian Condran's Projects



Brian Condran
Chest-on-chest Jewelry Cabinet
. His client has an extensive jewelry collection, hence all the drawers which will be lined with Ultra-Suede. The doors on the right hand side hide a bank of pullouts for holding necklaces. The small space between the two chests, at the client’s request, hides a bread board type pullout which provides a working space for her jewelry.
This is a veneered project. The dovetails have the appearance of having end grain [see the detail picture below the main picture]. This is accomplished by “baking in” end gain under the veneers. The body of the chest is white oak with beautiful ray patterns. The draw faces and cabinet doors are figured Sycamore. The drawer and cabinet pulls as well as the cabinet base are solid Padauk. The cabinet doors are hung on shop-built brass knife hinges. May 2020

13 Brian built this cabinet decorated with a marquetry likeness of James Krenov to honor him, the Director of the Fine Woodworking program at the College of the Redwoods in Fort Bragg, CA.

It was displayed at the Highlight Gallery in Mendocino in September 2001.
12 Brian Condran - our veneering/marquetry expert shared with us a segmented veneered lamp that was in a juried show in Pennsylvania. It's a beautiful piece made with birdseye maple veneer, over a basswood core, and a base and top edging from bubinga.
