This cabinet was built for a specific application in a family room. It serves as a corner cabinet between two sofas and is constructed to hold a computer, printer and supplies.
Honduras mahogany was used for the exterior of the cabinet. It was toned with a dye stain to reduce the redness of mahogany. The dye was shaded into the corners of the panels, providing an appearance mindful of light and shadow playing through the leaves of a tree.
Top panels on all sides are an open lattice, allowing heated air from the equipment to escape. One photo shows the components I made to build the lattice.
A four-sided match of honduras mahogany was used to veneer the top panel, providing a striking display of grain and color.
Internally, pull-out trays are sized to hold the computer (lower right) and printer (upper left). Two storage drawers were designed to occupy the remaining space. The trays and drawers are on full-extension ball-bearing slides which allows access to the connections on the components.
