|Q. Are your
cabinets solid wood or veneered particle board?
A. Solid hardwood
is used in most of our cabinets. However, we now offer the shelf

customer option and adds no cost to the cabinet.
Q. What is "figured" wood?
A. "Figured" refers to wood with distinctive
markings or unusual grain patterns. Types of figured wood are
figured cherry, curly cherry, birdseye maple, and tiger maple to
name a few.

bookshelf type cabinets. Our standard model is 40" high x
32" wide x 6" deep and holds 450 CDs in 6 rows of 75
each. These units are a more space saving and cost effective way
to store CDs. We can also custom make this type of cabinet to your
