Jeanmarc, the project took about 80 hrs., which is way too long. Rob, the interior is done in velvet. I purchased the the box and 12×24 sheets from Rockler. It’s a little on the $ side, but well worth it in the end.

Beautiful armoire, my wife is looking for something like this for our bedroom, was this your own design or from plans?

It’s a gorgeous piece. Very nice work.

Very nice, what are the dimensions of this? It looks big, but looks can be deceiving I guess.

Martin: I designed on the fly. This is a terrible way to do things. It cost me a lot of extra time, oh well. Richard: the overall dim are 24w x 16d x 40h. The inset sides are exactly 12” so the velvet sheets would fit w/o being cut. It is going to be delivered Wednesday to the client. It is for his wife’s birthday.

This is a real looker. I’ve never seen the red oak and birdseye combo before. With the black accent and contemporary style it really looks elegant.
