My client really liked my Aurora Media Cabinet but it simply would not serve the function he needed.
The bottom two drawers are for lateral files and have full extension slides. All the other drawers run on waxed wooden runners.
This piece is one part of a 3-piece office set. The other two pieces being my Aurora Pedestal Desk and my Aurora Office Chair.

So if this does not fit his requirements. What is it that he wanted. (No full extension slides) of something that is different.

I think it looks great. beautiful job.

Thanks everyone!

Brian – The end (side) panels are veneered – so they were easily matched
Karson – My client needed a cabinet with lateral file drawers – there was not room enough behind the pocket doors of the Aurora Media cabinet for them
