This is an entertainment unit made of Red Gum. It measures about 96” x 20” x 29”.
There is a shelf behind the doors, to accommodate an amplifier, set top box and DVD player. There are six drawers to allow for storage of discs, tapes?? and other paraphernalia.

Regards,

Rob

Hi Dusty56,

The colour of the wood is best represented by pics #1 and #3. The shots in the workshop were a bit subdued due to the light.

Beautiful looking piece, I have never used red gum is it easy to work with?

Hi Marty,

Red Gum does work well, at least in my hands. It is a pretty hard and dense species, so dulling of blades is to be expected. One other thing, when joining two pieces, it pays to prepare the joint surfaces immediately before making the joint, to prevent oxidation of the timber surface causing poor glue adhesion.

Regards,

Rob
