The Harper Cabinet is Modeled to Resemble a Personal Butler

Cabinetmaker Thomas Schneider designed 'The Harper,' a whiskey cabinet that's intended to resemble the form and stance of a butler handing you a drink.

Now, most of us aren't posh enough to have our own butler waiting on us hand and foot. This is a tragic reality, yes, but the Harper cabinet is the next best thing to having your own staff.

Schneider explains that, though cabinetmaking is often seen as an "antiquated discipline," there is room to create a contemporary design with traditional techniques. The finished product has an old-world sophistication mixed with a modern feel. So, dry your tears, pour a glass of whiskey into your goblet and thank your "personal butler" for always being there for you.
