Double Sided Buffet
A custom double sided buffet….the unit will sit in the room as a divider, utilizing both sides of the piece. Word cannot describe the beauty and all the details in this piece. Fabricated with African Mahogany hardwoods inlaid with walnut burls. The doors are individually hand carved with oak leaves and acorns. Notice the carvings on in pairs. The unit also boasts a unique electrical system with hidden outlets with USB power tucked behind fold down fronts for easy access for warm dishes served. The top has granite inserted with wood edging. The doors, corbels and bun feet are all hand sculpted with unique detailing features. Definitely a beautiful and stunning piece of furniture…an heirloom for generations to enjoy.
This was a team effort to complete:
My brother designed the Buffet, I designed the carvings and engineered the blue prints. Then I routed out the elliptical panels and carved the oak leaf and acorns also the eight medallions and worked on the corbels. My Son Eric Zongker turned on the lathe the eight bun feet. Mike Irvin who has been a craftsman here at Zongkers for over ten years. Mike made the unit, doors, side panels, and top edges. Also Curt Star made the drawers and worked on the corbels, Curt has been with us for over 17 years. For finishing the buffet my son Eric and I finished sanded, conditioned, toned, and stained and finished the piece. It was a very tough color to achieve. It seems like dark colors are always complicated.
