Home theatre cabinet in Marri

I am currently working on a large home theatre cabinet in solid WA Marri, built in the same style as the toy box featured in a previous blog. As you can see in the photos, there are a lot of hand cut dovetail joints within the structure which are integral to the overall strength of the unit. This type of traditional joint is far superior to the modern day biscuit and domino joints which rely on glue technology. Dovetail joints have proven the test of time, being found in furniture entombed with Egyptian mummies!
