This entertainment center was created out of solid maple and maple plywood.
Describe, in detail, the project/item's construction
Once the design was approved we began to manufacture and assemble the different pieces, before we put a finish on it we went to the client's home and did a paper template on the wall to see if any adjustments needed to be made. Once those adjustments were made we finished it with an ebony stain that was almost black but still maintained the integrity of the grain in the wood. The two drawers are dovetailed. The unit had to be built in segments to allow for the various depths of the shelving.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
This piece is a collaboration of the customers vision and our design skills. It is unusual because of the different levels for the floating shelves which we also combined with closed cabinetry to accommodate their multiple electronic components. Installing this piece was challenging because of the multiple levels and depths involved.
