Blanket Chest or Cube Table in African Shedua by Gerald McCabe
A blanket box, storage cabinet, or cube table designed and crafted by Gerald McCabe. A Southern California woodworker and guitar-maker, McCabe produced this piece in lustrous shedua wood for his own company, Erin Furniture. The case has four smooth faces in solid wood, with McCabe’s signature rounded edges. Panels open at brass hinges on either side of the case for easy access to stored items. A wooden brace rotates underneath the cabinet doors so they rest open like drop leaves. Unsigned.
Condition: Excellent restored condition; professionally refinished and hand-oiled.
Dimensions: The closed cabinet is 26” wide, 29.75” deep, and 22” tall. Each door/leaf is 20” wide. The case expands to a table with a length of 44” and 64” with one and two leaves up, respectively.
