I was commissioned to make this piece. It was my first attempt at steam bending…what a blast. The console is constructed of solid cherry and ash with a birch ply backer. Finished with Danish oil and paste wax.

Great looking cabinet, fantastic build. The steam bending came out great, one sweet cabinet.

A great looking piece! The curved front/doors make this a very unique console. I love the slatted doors as well.

Thank you everyone for all your comments, they are greatly appreciated!
Loren- I did steam bend the radius parts first just in case there was a significant change in curve from my jig and layout drawing. Incredibly they came out almost exactly to my layout.
