This was fabricated from Maple, MDF, and poplar. Client supplied a basic photo, but gave me free hand on design. The piece is made in three parts, for a total length of 15’, cases are 7’ tall. The surround and hearth for the firebox is 1.25” thick quartz counter top material. The finish was Acrylic Enamel, semi-gloss over primer, all paint work was with HVLP sprayer. All shelving is adjustable, and the doors are hinged with concealed hinges. The vertical pilasters are fluted.
