Finally getting around to posting this project. This is the last piece I built before the firm I worked for closed it’s doors permanently. :(
The piece is a TV lift cabinet with the TV facing backwards.

It will be placed behind a couch in the center of a large room.

The veneers are quartered, and crotch mahogany with Amboyna burl and tulipwood accents. The center of the end panels are crotch mahogany arranged to give the appearance of a fountain. —

It has been a blessing to have worked for a firm that gave me the opportunity to work on so many challenging projects!

Really nice work – great design and execution
I’m sure with such quality work like this the closure was for good reason

Agree with Dennis. WOW!!!!
Why did this company close it’s doors? This work is exceptional in every way. I love the attention to detail especially the book matching, the proportions, the elegance and the lovely grain. It is truly FINE WOODWORKING and should be placed on the cover of a magazine-seriously….......
Thanks for sharing.

Awesome job Marshall! We closed because we simply just ran out work. This was the last piece of a four year project on one house. The only job we had four for years for the most part. I think we all new after this job was over we were going to be in trouble. It didn’t take long.

Thanks for the kind words. The straight tulip wood and diamond banding was pre made off the shelf and the round and oval banding was custom. Les reminded me that the burl was Amboyna burl, so I have corrected the text. Also, Les turned the knobs and did a great job. I don’t remember the wood he used – maybe he will chime in. :)

Exquisite work. Looks like a well built cabinet, it will surely be a piece to be admired in any room. Congratulations on an outstanding build!

That is truly a work of art. Absolute masterpiece. If I could only do half as good. Sorry about losing your job.
