Walnut Liquor Buffet
My client, ‘Kim’ from Palmetto Bay, Florida commissioned this solid walnut liquor buffet cabinet, describes the project best:
“I needed a free-standing buffet cabinet to fit a particular area and that would coordinate with our other furnishings. We had an initial discussion about the function and style, and photos of other furnishings / finishes. This was fairly quickly followed by an initial rough sketch, which helped us finalize details such as the width of the drawer column, and refinements to the design and quote. In the design phase, I was particularly impressed with the distinctive integrated wood handles for the cabinet doors and drawers. The cabinet was produced and delivered within the estimated time frame, which was reasonable.
The delivered cabinet is stunning, a classic piece that we will keep forever. The design is beautifully executed (e.g., the way the wood grain of the drawer fronts is matched). The finish is perfect, and will be durable. I was very happy with the process, and am planning to have additional work done.”
I would only add that because the two doors are tapered from top to bottom they needed a special hinge for them to open correctly. After testing a few conventional ones and not liking how they worked, I ended up custom fabrication a couple pairs of knife hinges out of brass flat bar. Along with the wood drawer pulls, this piece is 100% custom made.
