Made this for an interesting fellow that happens to deal in vintage guitars. (Notice the guitars hanging on my shop wall) He saw my website piece that I have on my home page and wanted a similar yet unique cabinet. We toyed around with some different sides and legs and settled on this “Zeppelin” leg echoing the famous airship. Jaques Ruhlmann did some similar legs with facets on them back in the art deco era. The Ivory is actually translucent acrylic which looks similar to honey onyx. The cabinet doors are Macassar Ebony while the rest is Wenge. It was quite a challenge getting the leg to fit to the flat front and curved side at the same time. I included the original shop drawing as a point of interest as this is what I show the customer in conjunction with finished samples.
The interior drawers were made from Macassar as well. I even made an elliptical center channel speaker to match the look with a Macassar face.
