The beam cupboards were originally created from the idea of using the cross beams, which hold the panels together, as hinge points as well. In applying that concept, a much more important principle emerged: the size of the beams is defining for all sizes, that’s to say the height, breadth and depth of the cupboard is defined by the breadth and thickness of the beams. The size and proportions of the cupboard can be affected by changing the amount of beams. It is not necessary to saw the beam lengthwise for any component part, it only needs to be shortened. This is important because there are oſten nails in the old wood. Because of the varying beam sizes, the cupboards are made one at a time, and fitted with hinges and closing system. The intention is to produce a range of cupboards in which, due to the variation in beams, measurements and choice of colour, no two are the same.
