Quick update..... she had to take the back seat for a little bit... bit, she's back up on the bench getting finished off.....

This cabinet is in two pieces... the bottom, portion, which is complete except for the finish and installing front latches.... and the top display portion... which should only take me a day or two to finish....

Here's how the bottom finished out....

Avallo Accumonitor system installed.....



Passive air flow from bottom (box storage area) to top (drawer storage)...



Drawers with "mirrored" slats....



Front view....



Accumonitor controls mounted inside the accessory drawer.... I need to tidy up the wires, but she's hooked up,



Thanks for looking......

Beautiful work. If you don't mind me asking, what finish did you go with for the Wenge?

I asked a shave-brush maker to turn a brush handle out of Wenge about a year ago. He has quite a bit of trouble getting it to take the high-gloss CA finish. He suggested tungoil but it wasn't the look/feel I was looking for in a shave brush. I'm sure it would work fine for other purposes. Eventually I found a suggestion to heat up the first coat or two of CA with a torch. This allowed air bubbles trapped by the pores to thin out or escape. He tried it and it worked perfectly. I was just curious of your solution as I love the looke of Wenge. It's gorgeous.

Here's a couple pics (not embedded as it's a bit off topic).
