The case is made from solid Sapele, Mahogany and Walnut. Anigre and Sapele Veneer, and Brass. ​I made the brass door pull and the five brass frame connectors. At the age of 89 my father-Roland Yound assisted me on this piece by fabricating the brass grill on the front door. I took a few pictures of my Dad making the grill and monted them on the bottom of the cabient.

Very awesome… I have always liked Art Deco. You and your Dad did some nice work.
