Two door cabinet made from maple and walnut. Each door has a printed design sandwiched between two panes of glass. The design is the music notation for a quarter note rest. The quarter note rest symbol has a double meaning for me; my love for music and it’s also a reminder for me to “rest” and enjoy life. Finished with a blend of boiled linseed oil, mineral spirits and polyurethane. This will be used in my personal recording studio and was made specifically for my MIDI keyboard controller at a height that I can play while sitting at my console desk chair.

34” wide / 
26” tall / 15” deep

Very nice, I could use one of those for mic and headphone storage in my VO studio.
