Description: One of my earliest I made, this rolling drawer out of Douglas Fir remains one of my favorites. The idea for it came from the image of the old 50s buses and trucks. From the bolt pattern on the wheels, the three lines I etched into the rubber on the tires, to the truncated look, all culminating in the drawer pull which mimics the bumper, it spoke to the essence of these vehicles. Even the wood itself, a common Canadian wood, speaks to its classic, localized image.
