The brass trim expanded and contracted along its length until it worked itself free of the adhering epoxy. It has been replaced by black stained piece of oak trim, which  will not expand and contract along its length.

I needed a place to store the stereo, cable, TV, apple TV components under a wall mounted TV. I wanted to design a visually appealling and functional item which would make people take a second look or smile. The carcass is made of quarter-sawn, steam bent oak, each strip is composed of three 1/4" peices which have been glued together, in the hope that there will be little/no wood movement. The cherry on the bottom is finished with a dark, Watco walnut oil, the intent was to allow your eye to focus on the oak and not be distracted by the cherry. The blue leather and brass trim provide a pleasant contrast of materials whlle the LED lights, which can be set to slowly change color, or remain in a fixed color, add movement and surprise to the credenza.
