Here’s two cabinets out of African Mahogany and Veneers. The lower doors are crotch mahogany the inlays on the cabinets include; curly satinwood, ebony, tulipwood and maple. There is a total of 21 pull out trays behind the lower doors. The galss doors have hand made restoration glass, there are ten light individual glass panels in each door. One of the cabinets has a wet ber behind the glass doors. Each cabinet is about 10’ wide and around 11’ tall, 26” deep. They covered up the return vents in the wall so the crown pediments had hand made wood grills in the top for air flow. the Tops of them can be seen from a balcony so the tops have been finished out like the rest of the cabinet. They have lighted adjustable shelving behind the glass doors and in the upper side display cases. There is one sub woofer speaker in the of lower cabinets, one in the right on one and on the left in the other cabinet with removeable side panels. They dissasembled down to five pieces and transferred to the house and reassembled on site.
Four builders worked together to build them. My part was the glass doors, crown pediment and turn the large finails. I can’t remember for sure but I think there was about 2700 build hours.
Finish is dye stain and glazes with a laquer top coat.
Thanks for looking and have a “Happy New Year”.
