The Vickers Project
This cabinet is made of cherry plywood, solid cherry face frame and inset raised panel doors.
It doesn’t look like much but a true woodworker knows it’s what you can’t see that matters. Dado-ed and rabbited, Mortise and tenon joinery instead of pocket screws, biscuit joined face frames, maple dovetailed drawers, hand selected matching cherry plywood veneers and solid cherry.
The lower center pocket doors retract into the cabinet to access the stereo equipment on cherry plywood shelves.
The window seat has a lid for the sub woofer inside. The front panel has a cloth grill cover.
There are dovetailed, maple pullout drawers inside with CD and DVD dividers in the lower right cabinet.
We installed a black absolute granite hearth and fire place surround.
A shout out to my guys, Alberto and Jose, that helped me on this project. Good job.
I wish I had pictures with it filled with books and stuff. They have 3 boys 5, 7. and 10 yrs old. Everytime I came back to sneak a picture, well, you can imagine what the tv room looked like. I’ll have to make an appointment.
We designed it so it can be modified to fit a big flat screen TV later as it wasn’t in the client’s budget along with the custom cabinet.
The home owner decided to budget the money on the cabinet to make sure the quality doesn’t suffer and all the details that matter are included. The big screen can wait a year or two. Not to mention, TVs will be even better and much cheaper.
This cabinet was part of a complete tear down and new construction on the existing 1st floor deck and foundation. The clients actually tried to live in the basement at first….I tried to tell them. Ha!
Good quality, good clients, great project.
