Sumo Credenza

The top and sides are bookmatched Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry). The grain runs up one side, along the top, and down the other side, and is joined in the upper corners by hand-cut, variable width dovetails. The fronts are figured Jatoba, cut from a single board so the grain runs continuously through all the drawer and doors from one side of the 6 foot long cabinet to the other. The shaped legs, which flare out in all four directions, are made from solid Mahogany.

The upper skinny door pops down to allow remote control access to slim electronics such as a DVD player. Behind the two doors below is a movable shelf and space for more electronics. All compartments are vented for heat dissipation. The three large drawers with under-mount slides have lots of storage for DVDs, board games, etc.

The Aluminum pulls were custom made by a local machinist to my specifications. All drawers and doors have Blum "Blumotion" smooth-closing hardware. It was finished with conversion varnish.

Dimensions: Six feet long, 29" tall and 19" deep.
