New cabinet for the DVD/DVR/subwoofer made from scrap lumber. The real challenge was finding enough of the right materials to accomplish the task – a lot of rummaging around through all my boxes of scraps and many changes of direction. The amount, size, grain and color of any of the different species drove the design. The mahogany and cherry colors work well against the walnut and the contrasting color of the rift white oak works to tie the top, shelves, and ends together.
The reverse tapered legs are Honduras mahogany,side panel frame stiles are of an unknown species that smells like camphor when cut,frame rails are walnut, inset panels are African mahogany, lower inset panels are rift white oak strips that alternate in thickness to create a textured look, shelves are red oak frames with rift white oak front bands, the top is cherry boards alternating figured and flat grain, framed by rift white oak and walnut boards. Finish is one coat Seafin teak oil plus three coats of wipe-on poly. 25 1/2” wide x 17” deep x 28” high. Joinery is biscuits and splines.
