This is a entertainment armoire that I made a few years back. It is all solid cherry with macasser ebony inlays. It took me a bout a year to complete this. I had trouble finding the right panels for the doors and finding the 4”x6” piece of cherry that I needed for the top cove.
The only tools that I had at the time was a Craftsman contractors saw, router and assorted had tools. The cove was cut on the table saw on a diagonal and then scraped and hand sanded. The corners of the cove were done with rasps and files using a cardboard template. All pf the drawers are dovetailed and the “box” that holds the TV was dovetailed on the corners and I used sliding dovetails for the shelf and divders.
The finish is 8 coats of Danish Oil wet sanded, starting with 320 and working up to 1000 grit. The final finish is Briwax.
There were severial challanges on this, from the cove to the fully recessed doot hardware. This is probably the largest piece that I have completed.
