So this is part of a new line of furniture that I have produced called “PHILA” Inspired by the fast growing loft living community here in Philadelphia.
This is an entertainment unit. It’s made from solid walnut except the back and the two dividers. They are walnut veneered ply. Nothing to fancy here. The drawers are solid cedar, no dovetails. I built this piece and the chair and a side table, coffee table and a sofa table in a little under 3 weeks. Plus got a booth ready for the Baltimore fine furnishing show that happened last weekend. So fancy hand cut joinery was out of the question for all these pieces.
The drawer fronts are tiger maple. I’m not a fan of book matching, so the fronts are two different pieces of tiger maple. Instead of using any handles that I thought would ruin the look of the piece, I carved out little dimples for your fingers to fit into and pull. The drawers are on BLUM BLU-MOTION slides, which have the soft close action.
