The intent was to create a base where the legs appear to not touch the case and give the illusion of a floating case, topped with a floating top.
The Carcass is made from Sapele. It is dovetailed on the corners, and there are Air vents routed into the top surface. The doors are made from 1 single sapele board and was my first experience with flattening a board 14” wide. The doors are hung with barrel hinges and use a magnetic spring catch to open and close. The Sapele top is supported by 3 small ebonized walnut spacers to the carcass. The legs and stretchers are made from walnut which was ebonized with a Steel wool and vinegar mixture. All of the jointes are mortise and tenon. The carcass sits on 3 supports that attach to the curved stretchers. The finish is BLO and top coated with 2 coats of waterlox.
