This tv stand I made for our home last year(1st pic) led to a couple of recent commissions. Of course they didn’t really have a tv stand in Stickley’s day, so it’ really just a down-sized sideboard. This is the first piece I ever drew up on graph paper and designed myself. Of course, most everything A&C has been done before. I just borrowed elements from different sideboards I liked. People seem to like the legs. They are probably Greene & Greene/Japanese inspired.
Details: Of course its made of quartersawn white oak. The outer shells are all solid wood, mortise and tenon joinery. The dividers and shelves are cabinet grade qswo plywood. The poplar drawers are made with locking rabbets. Drawers are also fitted with dividers to accommodate dvds and cds. Also drawers have full extension ball-bearing slides. Usually I like wood slides, these are better suited in this case. Finish is watco dark walnut danish oil and satin poly.
The latest two I made were for the same couple I made a sideboard for. Every time I deliver one piece, they order a couple more. It was rewarding to see my work come together in their home (last pic).
Questions and comments always welcome. Peace out, Red
