Blemishes

Vlekken is a small cabinet designed to store your wine and liquor, but is also perfectly fitted for other items of comparable height and size. The cabinet is conceived specifically to expose the natural irregularities in wood, which are often considered deficiencies and blemishes in industrial production.

A curious tiger pattern meanders along the oak case.

Stretchers consisting of a set of three slim oak sticks connect the legs at the bottom for stability purposes.

Preparing parts

After having roughly shaved off the paint and other deficiencies, it’s time to plane the parts flat, square, and smooth.
