When posting on LumberJocks I always post things that I made by myself. For this two sided buffet it was a team effort to complete. This piece I’m really excited about and wanted to share with my LJ’s buddy’s.
The Buffet is made out of Genuine Mahogany hardwoods and walnut burl veneer. Both sides are a mirror image of each other. The unit size is 42” high x 36” deep x 80” Long. Each Elliptical panel carving took me 32 hours, a total of 256 hours.
My brother Dan designed the Buffet, I designed the carvings and engineered the blue prints. Then routed out the elliptical panels then hand carved the oak leaf and acorns also the eight medallions and corbels. My Son Eric turned the eight feet, and Eric and I finished sanded, conditioned, toned, and stained and finished the piece. It was a very tough color to achieve it seams like dark colors are always complicated. And Mike Irvin who has been a craftsman here at Zongkers Custom woods for over ten years. Mike made the unit, doors, side panels, and top edges. Also Kurt Star made the drawers and helped with the corbels, Kurt has been with us for over 17 years.
Thank you for looking LumberJocks and happy woodworking to you!!!
