The client ordered a 2-piece farmhouse set, with hardwood tops. I managed to procure some kiln dried, quarter sawn 6/4 red oak for an amazing price of $2/bd ft:



The wood came with a live edge, the boards on the right are already milled.

Then there was a closely averted disaster with a week of very heavy raining; the shop got flooded and everything had to be hastily relocated to the materials shed:



Finally, the delivery day:



And the submission:









Materials: red oak stained for dark walnut (not my idea), CFP 3/4” birch plywood, 1/2” poplar: The doors were outsourced, I don’t have the setup for it (yet).

P.S. Blatant cheating with the trim - the shoe molding and the baseboard were coped with an angle grinder, and in some cases were ground for shape & butt joined. But no one will ever know.

Thanks gents. As with most built ins, there was electrical involved; for the cabinets’ side, an outlet had to he relocated behind the TV. For the bench/chest, I had to inset the box on the exposed side (the one facing the fireplace). Also forgot to mention that the exposed plywood was rubbed with Danish Oil, both for sealing and for that added contrasting look.
