This is one I designed ( with the clients input) and built a few years ago.
All of the doors are one pocket slides. The narrow angled panels (between the center cab and the side cabs) pop out for wire access.

The finish – - – A natural cream paste-wood filler was applied to reduce the visual impact that red oak’s open grain has – - -then a fruit wood stain, followed by a clear lacquer finish.

This looks great. I opened the first two photos and looked at them side-by-side. It looks just as good with the doors open as it does with them closed. Is that some kind of smoked glass on the doors? They look dark but it may just be the way the photo was taken. Again, great job!

You or your customer has great ideas. This project would take a lot of design, Creatitivy and labor to come out this good. You’ve raise the bar for the rest of us.
Thanks for sharing a great project.
I also like the finish, and as you noted the open grain is what I don’t like about oak, I’ll have to get some wood filler and experiment and see if I can repeat your great finish.

Another amazing project, great work. I think it was Andy Rae who said he used the same filler, must be pretty good stuff. Surely made this red oak (which is my favorite) look incredible.

I think if this were mine, I’d also have you build matching speaker cabinets too. Looks good Marshall.

Ohh, I see a nice set of Cornwalls in that picture. very nice. I only had the budget and space for the Heresys long ago when I was assembling my components. I’m jelous.

BTW, thanks for the filler info. I have a large pile of RO that I’m in a quandary what to do with because I much more preffer the closed grain of WO. I’ll check it out.

Have your say...
