Here is a newly completed commissioned piece. It is three separate pieces. The towers are 20” X 20” X 48”, the main cabinet is 24” D X 36” H X 70” L. The finish is a custom blend using dye, danish oil, de-waxed shellac and general finish top coat. It was a great project to build and quite a challenge at the same time due to its size and getting the three pieces to fit together in uneven flooring. I used leveling feet on each piece so it can be placed anywhere and be level. It is made from quarter sawn white oak. Thanks for taking the time to look!

Looks like a lot of work!

Nice finish and styling. Are the tower drawers sized for CDs/DVDs?

thanks! Yes they have grooves milled into the drawers and there is a quarter inch partition that can be placed to accommodate different size cases.

How did you draw the curves? Drawing bow? And how did you cut them, band saw, scroll saw?

Curves were all drawn with a home made drawing bow and cut out on the bandsaw.
