Chinese Chest

I made this for a girlfriend's mother, so it had to come out right. They needed a components cabinet for the new Sony wall mounted flat panel TV in their den. The room was dominated by a Chinese armoire and some other pieces.

The entire exterior is padauk. The interior wood is white oak. I used a dowel for the door hinges following the Chinese method, and had a brass plate from Ball & Ball cut specially to fit for the latch. The carved return detail on the leg is my own invention.
