Scrappy Credenza

February 21, 2011

A bespoke furniture piece designed by Aidan Morris, the Scrappy Credenza incorporates timber offcuts into a striking cabinet design.

Designed by Aidan Morris, the Scrappy Credenza is made from the timber offcuts that are discarded in the manufacturing process of other furniture pieces. The frame and base of the cabinet are made from solid and veneered Tasmanian Oak, while the doors are made from a tapestry-like arrangement of different timbers.

As a complement to the reuse of timber that would otherwise go to waste, the size of the cabinet is based on using a full 2400 x 1200 sheet – to avoid wasting any raw materials. All timber is FSC certified, and finished with an all-natural hardwax oil. The doors open and close with soft-close hinges, giving the piece a smooth finish.

Aidan Morris is a graduate of the Sturt School for Wood. He runs a bespoke furniture company called Bent Creations, based in Fairy Meadow, NSW.
