This was fabricated to fit in those awkward fireplace nooks that always seem to leave homeowners scratching their heads about what to do. Almost 6ft in width this cabinetry gives endless storage. The cabinetry utilized pocket holes and concealed hinges to give it an elegant look. Notice the “turtle” that was utilized to allow the remotes to function through the wooded doors! The proportion of the arch was very difficult as the area was irregular. There is actually a jig that you can build to construct a proportionate arch in any area and all you need is four nails and 2 pieces of scrap wood about 1IN square. Send me your contact information and I can send you the video. I applied some appliques above the archways to give some pazzaz. Thanks for looking.

Looks good

It also matches the fireplace well

Those awkward spaces are a great source of business :)

Nice job, looks like it belongs.
