Here are a set of cabinets that I built between a chimney and exterior wall and there was a hot water baseboard heater that the customer wanted me to leave and work around. She also wanted access to be able to clean and if necessary, bleed the unit. I made the little panels on the bottom removable and I made the keeper knobs by hand for an old world feel. The unit is obviously made of Red Oak and the contrasting wood is Walnut. She had a tree taken down about 20 years ago at their last house and she had been saving the wood (which she had sawed up for her to use later) for a special project and I guess she finally found one! I laminated the front of the shelves with the Walnut too.

Nice job Keni. Did you build it in pieces and assemble on site or did you bring lots of help on delivery day?

Love it… good job… was there enough lumber to do the entire job with her saved wood… extra? Like the solution for the baseboard heaters. I wonder if it will move the wood for it to get that warm… Further drying and all. They always say dont park a piano over a heat register but then again just a little movement in an instrument makes a LOT of difference versus cabnetry.

Really a nice looking piece, Keni!
