This Tv cabinet is constructed out of a frame of 35mm thick Tasmanian oak. The draw front panels are made of feature grade messmate. The frame has been made with external box joins on each end really showing a contrast between face grain and end grain as each reflects light differently and generally end grain will always look darker as it absorbs alot more oil. The draw fronts were cut from the same piece of messmate, the grain pattern continues from one piece to the other creating a lovely balance. There are no draw handles as i find these  create to much clutter on pieces, if i want a piece to look busy or more striking i prefer to choose a piece of timber which will do this not by adding hardware. To operate the draws you simply push in 10mm and they pop out 60mm.
