This is essentially an elaborate entertainment center, adapting Greene & Greene's style to fit with what these folks wanted. The 2 units beside the fireplace house stereo components, cd's, dvd player, etc..They wanted the look of drawers, but needed to be able to access the components, hence the drop-down drawer faces. The single door in these 2 units houses the reel-to-reel.

Across the room are 2 more units. The base unit houses speakers and a sub-woofer behind pocket doors. This is all built from FSC cherry, with faceted walnut plugs. The upper unit has 3 glass doors on each face, with the tree being overlaid onto the glass across the 3 doors. It is attached to the frames with mortise & tenon joints, and the many sections of the tree and canopy outline are connected to each other with mortise and tenon joints.

Great job! Top notch craftsmanship! Only thing that I don't like is the fireplace, not sure why your client wanted to cover up all of that beautiful stone!

Thanks guys. It's always kind of funny when an old thread resurfaces years later. Answer to the question: Marantz. Jaydawg74, that is what subjectivity is all about. They liked the stone, but felt it was a bit too much, so they wanted a way to be able to see it without it being dominating. That's the design I came up with. They were very happy with it. And Jeff Shafer, the tree is actually overlaid onto the 3 glass doors. 36 individual pieces of wood, every one of them joined with mortise and tenons.
