Here is a challenging built-in that I created for a client in NH. All in all this was a fun project that made great use of the festool Domino. This was the first project that I utilized a 45 degree inset drawer. Let me know if you guys have any questions. . . . and as always, happy building!

Thanks BurlyBob! I can thank my electrician for all of the lighting. I brought him in early on in the project and we planned out where all of the lighting was going to hide and how it was going to work. All of the lighting is controlled on a dimmer and we used 1/2” strip LED lighting throughout. The one idea that he had that I will carry on to other pieces, is adhering and backlighting the TV. With the TV on you don’t get any interfering light.

That is a beautiful built-in cabinet! I love the look of the walnut, and that back lighting is really something!
