Four years ago my partner and I (Brian Kelly and Ted Williams) produced a guest house casework and mill project for a fellow woodworking firm. His client recently requested that we execute an additional cabinet for the main house as an entertainment center.
Crafted by Brian Kelly, the material is African mahogany with a maple interior. All surfaces are either carved or hand planed and scraped to represent an 18th century finish reminiscent of the period furniture in their collection.
The piece posed some unique problems as had the earlier project. All pieces had to be cut and assembled prior to carving, then disassembled for final assembly and finishing before applying to the interior casebody.
The finish is a low sheen water-based lacquer with hand rubbed wearing before glazing.
