The Epic Tale of Crafting an Entertainment Unit

The Epic Tale of Crafting an Entertainment Unit

Welcome to the world of custom furniture, where your dreams of the perfect piece become reality. Meet the star of our story: the Custom Made Soho Entertainment Unit.

The Quest Begins

Our client Wes and his wife ventured into our showroom with a noble quest: to have a solid timber Blackbutt floor standing Entertainment Unit custom made.

Wes needed a cabinet with cupboard space. With our ability to build to any length and configuration, Wes and his wife decided on 3 cupboards and 6 doors, creating a sizeable 3.25m long x 50cm deep x 65cm H unit.

Crafting the Masterpiece

The long size required precise cutting and mitre work. However, with expert collaboration with our makers, the project was underway. 

The Creative Process Unfolds

Lumber Furniture crafted detailed drawings for Wes, ensuring every detail was to his liking. With his approval, the construction began. 

Along the way, we shared photos of the build progress, showcasing the dedication and skill of our team.

The Grand Reveal

After much anticipation, the Entertainment Unit was complete. The final result was nothing short of spectacular. The unit stood as a testament to the craftsmanship and dedication of Lumber Furniture. The unit was to be mounted onto black legs, adding a touch of elegance to its design.

- Candles or Lanterns: For a cozy, ambient lighting option.
