HDTV Enclosure Cabinet
I was commissioned to design this solid wood cabinet for a married couple, the husband wanted the TV concealed when not in use and the wife wanted a place to show her collectibles of their world travels. Both have an appreciation for hand-made things and a close tie with the places of origin. Keeping the space in mind I drew this geometrically balanced piece using some beautiful cherry. I put the raw wood through a process of acid wash and neutralization to end up with an almost transparent top layer of wood tissue that reflects the light nicely (the wall to the side has large windows). These pictures show the unit with the older Tv in place that was soon replaced with a TV that does not have side speakers and fits the center space better. I installed lights to illuminate the frosted glass in the evening. As with everything I build this piece of furniture is one-of-a-kind. Another commissioned piece, the CherryWood Display case on the opposite side of the room is similar in size, with glass doors, but the sameness ends there.
