My big project for the year is finally done! Honestly, the kumiko for the doors took about 4 times as long as the actual stand and door frames! But it allows airflow for the electronics while keeping them hidden (wife’s request). Blum 110 soft close inset hinges and handles from Northern Crescent Iron!

I don’t comment on projects very often, but this one caught my attention. What a truly masterful piece. Every detail works.

I keep going back to the kumiko picture To get that all square is quite the accomplishment. The whole case looks fantastic.

Awesome piece of work in every way. I love the wood figure at the ends. I also love the curves of the legs. Did you design the piece yourself?

That looks fantastic. I like the chunkier dimensions as well as all the door detail and great bookmatched ends. Well done.

The piece is masterful. Are the kumiko panels made of walnut? Was it hard to work with? It seems like most kumiko is done with very soft wood like bass.
