Frank Howarth makes some great stuff. When I saw these (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPL3kJPsVdA) I decided to make a pair of my own.
It’s made out of 3/4” Sapele plywood. Face frame, base, and inlays are all made from 6/4 Sapele lumber. Finished with 5 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal satin. Last coat is diluted with Naphtha by 1/4. Great way to minimize dust and other particles from landing in your finish. Final dimensions are 47” wide, 35” high, and 12” deep. The back panel (1/4” Sapele ply) rests in a rabbet to maximize shelf space.
I used floating tenons to strengthen the mitered corners of the carcass and base. Face frame was attached with floating tenons as well.
