This little cabinet sets at the end of the center island in the Mr’s closet. Its made from African Mahogany hardwoods, quartered and ribbon strip mahogany veneers. The ends are magazine racks with water fall qt. mahogany veneer. The banding around the leather top is ribbon stripe mahogany veneer. It also has a tv lift at the back of the cabinet. There is six drawers on blumotion slides. The six carvings around the top of the case are a mere 1 1/2” square. The Moroccan leather was original the house and has been used through out His bath and closet area’s.

The last picture is of the closet island nearing completion. Its built to tear down and go through a 32” doorway going into the closet.

The finish is dye stain, then filled, sealed, glazed and top coated.

We’ve been working this house for 2 1/2 years now. Just getting started in the kitchen currently.

Thanks for looking!

No wonder you haven’t been posting much lately, 2 1/2 years on one house? Are they living in it or just waiting till it’s finished?

You are the guys Id call to do my muti-million dollar house : )

Love that African Mahogany and the color you got is awesome. Can be a challenge to work with though. So, a TV lift…in the closet? LOL, well I guess if you can. I like the way you ran the grain on the top, end in instead of around like most of us would do. I like the way it works on the mitres better that way. Thanks like always for showing us your awesome work. And hey, hows the new shop extension working out?
