Does anyone know of a book or a web-site that might show me how to build a cordenza??
I have a good idea (it’s only a desk) but this company wants me to build approx 40 of them. So I would like to get it right..LOL

“A credenza is a piece of furniture that became very fashionable during the second half of the 19th century. Often made of a burnished and polished wood decorated with marquetry, a central cupboard would be flanked by symmetrical quadrant glass display cabinets. The top would often be made of marble, or another decorative stone, or of inlaid wood.”

Today, a credenza is more often a type of sideboard used in domestic or office situations. In dining rooms, it is typically made from wood and used as a platform to serve buffet meals. In today’s office environment it is usually placed behind or to the side of the desk and is used as additional storage and work surface. The design of a credenza is usually taken directly from the style of the desk that it is paired with. A Google search for images of credenza will give you a flavor of the possibilities.
