The Sidekick

The sidekick was designed to be used as a front entry table. The top has been handcrafted from salvaged elm from Kamloops. The case was created using wedged through tenons for strength of structure and to adds some visual detail to the top. The two wood on wood sliding doors are both removable without the need of any tools. The case top has been secured to the base with half lapped stretchers. The maple legs have been burnt with a torch, brushed smoothed and oiled. A Japanese finishing technique which is knows as Shou Sugi Ban. The piece has been finished with danish oil and beeswax. The sidekick was made as a donation for the Kamloops YMCA Dream Home, where it will be showcased for the summer of 2017 and then auctioned off as a prize. Money raised through ticket sales go towards they YMCA family outreach programs.
