These cabinets took a long time due to all the inlays involved. The wave lines and circles are inlayed flush to the surface. There were 7 different wave lengths for a total of 53 to inlay. The circles were cut nickle size, and there were 27 of those. The side visible in the pictures was the dining room side, and those doors opened. On the reverse side, there were the same doors, but they were fixed. The upper cabinets had hinged glass doors on the side showing in the pictures, and mirror on the wall sides and on the section covering the soffit face. Inlays follow around the cabinets. Woods were ebony and satinwood, with oil based polyurethane finish rubbed out.
