Description: I've often clad my work in metal, but this was the first time I worked with curved small scales, singly nailed, and on such a small form. Typically, I've done pieces like the Sphere Stand - Walnut #2, which is a more triangular cladding. The shape of this rolling drawer evoked a more 'fish-like' form, and so it seemed to me to sort the scaling. The drawer front, however, I kept in wenge, and I added gaskets around the drawer to shield the aluminum from the copper.
