This cabinet could be used to display many things but my focus when I designed it was to create a piece that could really show off beautiful art glass.

Both the outside and the center cabinet have low voltage halogen lighting - top and bottom. Upper and lower lights are independently controlled by dimmer switches located in the upper right drawer. Glass shelving is fully adjustable and additional shelving was provided for displaying smaller items. The piece is detailed with lots of fine beading and raised panels. Ebony carvings are set into the corners of the glass doors and the lower Ebony molding is detailed with carved and turned components. All drawers are hand dovetailed. Drawer and door pulls are carved Ebony pendants mounted to posts and plates I fabricated from solid Brass. All six legs are fluted and have turned Ebony feet.
