About the Cabinet

Hannah Cabinet

The Hannah Cabinet

Geoff Hannah worked on the cabinet for a period of six and a half years.

The Cabinet is made in the traditional European style and consists of 34 different types of solid timbers and veneers, 4 kinds of rare shells and 17 varieties of precious and semi-precious stones with the main frame being mahogany and the columns ebony.


When Bungendore Wood Works Gallery near Canberra recently displayed the cabinet, visitations increased by 44%. David MacLaren, the Artistic Director stated “the Hannah Cabinet should remain in Australia and be placed in a national public gallery or institution, under expert care, to thrill Australians and visitors to this country for decades, if not centuries to come”.
