Walnut and Ash Cradenza.
This took me about 6months to build, over weekends and evenings.
Carcass is built with blind dovetails that will never be seen because of the finish. Solid wood back.
Thanks for looking..:)

I like the book matched drawers. Those are some wide boards. Why painted? Not a bad choice, but curious what the decision making metric was.

Exactly what the client wanted. I was very reluctant at first, wanting to just oil up the Ash. But the contrast is quite nice, and i am happy with the end result. And most importantly the lady is too.

Just curious, I assume the sliding doors are solid walnut? Did you do anything to prevent warping?
IE: hiden breadboards ends…

Excellent work – beautiful execution.

I’m glad (largely with the advent of large flat-screen HD TVs versus the old CRT screens) credenzas are coming back.

Good point! I hadn’t thought about how flat-screens make these work for more people. I like credenzas, and I really like the design and construction of this one.
