Cherry Great Room

This is a set of six matching cabinets built on either side of a large fireplace. There are two cabinets and one corner cabinet on each side of the fireplace. The corner cabinet on the right serves as an entertainment center and allows for easy viewing of the television from any seat in the room. The cabinet "skeletons" are made of cabinet-grade plywood but the entire visible exterior is solid cherry. Each pair of doors is made of bookmatched, solid wood, one-piece panels. Even the large doors of the entertainment center feature one-piece 20" bookmatched panels! All of the frame pieces were selected for straight grain while the panels are either crotch grain or full cathedral grain. The doors are full mortise and tenon construction. The cabinet face frames are dovetailed together by hand. The cornice moulding is custom made and features six separate pieces of moulding, including a wonderful soffit design that creates a great shadow line. The air conditioning was routed to come out of the baseboard and cherry louvered vents were made to match. The leaded glass doors feature glass panels that were each hand made by a local artist, set in the doors and glazed. The use of tinted window glazing makes these doors as attractive from the inside as they are from the outside and adds a traditional touch. This is just an example of what can be done but gives an idea of my approach. It is rarely the case anymore, but I believe built-in furniture can and should be made with the same standards that are seen in custom free-standing furniture. I encourage local customers to inquire about your projects today for a free proposal and sketch!
