we recently finished two recycled chestnut cabinets for clients at stratton mountain, a nearby ski area. the last photo in the series is the original cabinet we made in about 2005, also integrated with stone surfaces. this new design is based on that project .. the second to last photo in the series is actually a photoshopped mockup inserting the image of the cropped cabinet into a photo of the existing space. we chopped off the top open section and made a copy of the design with a different interior for the other side of the fireplace. it looks pretty much like the finished thing if i do say so myself. lots of challenges here: installing a tv bigger than the width of the space available accessing; installing wood into stonework; accessing a kickspace heater under a bank of drawers in the left cabinet; stuff like that … for the full story, visit the post about it on my dorset custom furniture blog. there’s a great ‘before’ shot there ’’’’ and the other post in the link above is a detail of the bracket installation for the oversize tv …

Very nice. Like the flat finish you chose that just clicks with the rock..

Simply gorgeous. They are beautiful in their own right, but match the room perfectly! As an aside, those floorboards are massive!!!
