Federal Breakfront Stereo Cabinet in Sapela
This cabinet was designed for a customer to house stereo and AV components below a flat screen wall mounted TV.  The design is based on a federal style breakfront cabinet and features solid wood construction with a variety of inlayed stringing details.  The cabinet allows the electronics to be completely hidden from view and complements a formal or semi-formal setting. The cabinet is constructed from solid Sapela (an African mahogany) and features one fixed shelf and three adjustable shelves in the center cabinet to hold a variety of stereo components.  The side cabinets feature five pull out drawers to hold CD's, DVD's and a lower area for LP's.  This piece could also be designed for use as a hall cabinet, dining room or bedroom piece.
