Wine Case from Kent Parker
(The SR-680 was not photographed)
These photos were submitted by Kent Parker and feature our SR-680 side rail hinges. Kent's appreciation for crafts led to an early apprenticeship as a wood boat builder. He devoted his spare time to further hone his skills by re-building four of his own sailboats. Upon leaving the boatyard he started his own woodworking business constructing full and partial interiors for vessels.
"This case is designed to hold a "piano" of wine which is a 6 liter, 3 liter, 1.5 liter and 750 milliliter of wine bottles. A Steinway Model D, their largest concert piano, was chosen as the inspiration for the case. Its shape allowed for two more 750 milliliter bottles. The exterior of the case is black lacquer, hand rubbed, in the Steinway tradition. The inside "walls" and floor of the case are silver leaf over Japan red paint with a chemical patination process that produce the gold hue. The curved Black Walnut arm which holds the lid is inlaid with Paua Abalone shell and topped with a polished Travertine stone. Below the keyboard lid, hinged with Brusso SR-680 hinges, is a bookmatched piece of black walnut. The case is approximately 4' long x 2' wide and ~3' high with the lid open."
