Making a Bespoke Wooden Hi-Fi Rack

In this project I’m building a bespoke wooden hi-fi rack for a customer. As is usual with a project of this nature the customer had an idea of what they wanted the project to look like and specified sizes for the various sections. The final colour was chosen to match existing furniture in their room.

A shou sugi ban method was used to burn the Scandanavian redwood to a suitably dark finish, prior to a mahogany stain and final wax finish being applied. The unit is entirely jointed with half-blind bridle joints to ensure there are no visible fixings anywhere.

Here are some pictures of the finished unit. The CD / DVD / Bluray shelves are all adjustable:
