This very large, commissioned credenza was designed as an entertainment center to sit below a big, wall mounted, plasma TV. It is 76” wide 24-1/2” deep, and 34” tall. The cabinet and base are all solid walnut and the doors are bookmatched walnut burl veneers both inside and out.

Thank you everyone for the kind words.


Check out the construction blog,(HERE) it shows in pretty good detail how I did the feet with their shaping, reeding, and the 3-way miters.

This looks to be similar to an earlier piece. I wonder if it went into the same collection?
