I am selling one of my Custom designed, solid bamboo, mid-century modern media cabinets.
I designed and built this in the Summer of 2019.
I made this to resolve an issue in our old Livingroom. We had our TV, Turntables and all the A/V gear and speakers at the front of this room where it was our day to day Media for watching tv, listening to music etc...
I had slowly been putting together my "keeper" stereo system at the time (I still have this system) and while I wanted to listen to it, it needed to be tucked away when we were not using it. The compromise was for me to make this side buffet, media cabinet, side cabinet funiture that would house the stereo system (and other items in the drawers and adjustable shelved cabinet spaces while letting me access my Receiver, phono preamp, SACD player and cassette tape player.
I built spaces in the "base" that the cabinet sits on so that my connecting cables could reach from the spaces on either end without having to route them through the cabinet or above the cabinet etc. Hidden system.
I also built a simple access on the lower, left section of the base that would open up to allow me to unroll my speaker cables to run out to my speakers. They simply rolled back up when I was done using them (see pics showing the side cubby ).
I hand built bamboo vent for the top of the unit above the cabinet where the amplifier was housed to help with airflow and overheating. The access spots on either side of the top of the cabinet have beautiful, brass grommets for organizing any cords that need to go down into the cabinet.
The materials for this build consist of 1 1/2" thick vertical grain bamboo plywood (which creates the overall, outside carcass of the cabinet); with matching 3/4 " bamboo ply for separators and shelves. The face door / drawer fronts are made of solid, "stranded" bamboo ply. I face matched the sheet so that the front is from the same sheet of material (appearance is more like a solid wood than the common, horizontal bamboo layout most are familiar with).
Drawers in the center are fully extending.
Each door on either side of the drawers is soft closing 160degree hinges with pegged, adjustable shelfs within.
The far left, and right sections have adjustable shelves (with the left side shelves having cut outs in the center to allow heat to dissapate in the section.
Both of the outside sections have clamshell style doors that can lock open, or soft close.
Materials for this build were over $5,000 at the time and the cost of this would be more now as the custom sourced bamboo has become rather out of reach at this point (note, none of this is bamboo vaneer over cabinet ply etc... all the ply in this is made entirely of solid bamboo, the 1 1/2 material that makes the body of this cabinet is now several thousand dollars for just that material).
This is a One Of A Kind piece. I did not use another designers cabinet to create this one; to my knowledge you are buying a singular, custom piece of furniture.
The cabinet is 96" wide X 23" deep X 27" tall.
We are moving from our current home and I do not have room for this in the new place. I would much rather pass this on to another to enjoy than just pay to put this in storage.
Serious inquiries only, if you decide to purchase this you will need to work out help to get this from out current location to your vehicle. with all the shelves out of it and drawers and door fronts off, it still weighs well over 200#s
