Materials Used: Cherry, Walnut, Hard Maple, Maple Veneer Core Plywood, and Baltic Birch Plywood
The Modern Entertainment Credenza was designed for a client who wanted a wall mounted flat screen but needed something to hold AV equipment, music, and movies.
The linear modern feel of the piece is accented by various details such as the recessed area beneath the top, the angular trim on the panels, the legs that wrap from front to back underneath the piece, and the high quality stainless steel square bar pulls from Linnea. The interior of the central unit has an adjustable shelf that is trimmed in walnut. This central area features a custom made aluminum air inflow grill designed and made by the Mockett Company. It also features a dual silent operation fan unit to evacuate warm air that is put off by the AV equipment. The drawers feature half blind dovetails and slide on Blum Bluemotion full extension undermount soft close drawer slides. The tower units on the sides also make use of the Blum drawer slides. The towers on this piece slide out revealing a cavity which is visible from the side of the unit when the tower is extended. I feel that this design adds visual interest as the dark colors of the cherry and walnut give way to the light maple interior. The towers can hold VHS, DVD, and CD media discs. The doors make use of Blum soft close 3 axis adjustable European cup hinges.
The dimensions are 60″ long, 20″ deep, and 34″ tall. No stain or color has been added. The color in the photos is that of the natural wood. A clear coat has been added to protect and enhance the wood’s natural beauty.
