I built this piece to accommodate our growing CD and DVD collection. Woods used are red oak, cherry ply side panels and walnut inlay accents. This was my first large scale fine woodworking projects and included a hand full of firsts for me at the time. Firsts include arched top and crown molding, inset finger grab pulls, bread board ends and inlaid accents. The hutch holds 425 DVD’s and the drawers hold a whopping 840 CD’s nested in holding trays.

Very nice Dewayne. I was drawn to the side panels and the pulls.

I love the arch crown. How did you do that? Did you mill it form one pieces and use a different router bits? Great work.

Your woodworking style is distinctive. I can identify it as yours as soon as I see it. And I like what I see.

You couldn’t have made this any bigger and located it where you did. It looks a little shoehorned into its location.

I’m curious about how you made the crown molding as well. All-in-all, a very well made project. Congrat’s!

PS: Any possibility of using a first name in your signature, it’s a little awkward to refer to you as dewoodwork??

Thanks for the comments folks. Seems like a great group here. I’ll address your questions as best as I can.

”I love the arch crown. How did you do that?” I borrowed the technique from a arch top amore project in a old issue of woodsmith magazine. It’s all about templates. The molding is two 3/4” pieces stacked. The top profile of the rail is created first and a scribe jig is used to create the step down sequence of moldings.

”You couldn’t have made this any bigger and located it where you did. It looks a little shoehorned into its location.” Yes I agree. It was all about accommodating my wife’s colossal DVD collection. She wanted a floor to ceiling bookshelf but I had other plans.

”PS: Any possibility of using a first name in your signature, it’s a little awkward to refer to you as dewoodwork??” My name is Dewayne and it is included in my signature. Am I missing something?

Hi Dewayne,

Very good workmanship! The idea of several “firsts” incorporated into a single project, shows your willingness to “push the envelope”

That’s the way to learn.
