This is my attempt at a Japanese style entertainment unit. It is all Cedar and uses traditional joinery methods and minimal glueing.
It took me 18 months to finish.
I hope you like it, I am very happy with it.

Photos are fixed :-)

There is also a blog on it if you would like to check it out.

Spectacular effort! Finding time for projects is often tough and at least for me, the longer they take, the less satisfaction I get from working on them. You patience has really paid off.

What comes next ? 8^)

Thanks mate, yes it was a test of patience but I was happy just to potter along and do a small chunk each week.

I’m really enjoying the side panels combined with the live edge top. Makes a really nice combination. Well done.
