African mahogany cabinet made by Burlington, ON woodworker Edward G. Robinson.

The cabinet was designed to match some existing bedroom furniture. It was made with African mahogany, which was left its natural color. The finish is polyurethane which warms the color of the wood. The design included curved door panels laminated with two layers of ¼” re-sawed veneer over ¼” bending plywood. It also has hand-carved appliqué for the corners. The reeded corner pilasters were made on a lathe then split down the middle and applied to the corners. It functions as a TV stand and book case for the guest bedroom. The inside is configured to support the cable box and a variety of general interest guest books. The cabinet took about 46 hours to complete.

Made by Edward G. Robinson.
