I designed this credenza (with a matching desk, the next photo in this gallery) for the office of an Atlanta attorney. In them, I wanted to capture a universal style. The two upper doors on either side of the center are roll-tops. This was a common design element in the early 1900s.

The piece is solid wood, except for the cherry veneer top. I bought the 12-inch wide veneer from Carlton McLendon, who had purchased the flitch 50 years ago. These days cherry trees rarely reach those widths. Suppliers have trouble finding 8-inch cherry. So while I can make similar pieces, they can never be exactly like these.
