THOMASVILLE REPRODUCTION

Entertainment Center

Here was a solution to a frustrating problem of what to do when the furniture company from whom you purchased your furniture line has discontinued that series.

This client had a house full of Thomasville Furniture, (Fisher Park Series) and wanted to add a matching entertainment center for their bedroom. With limited space, the cabinet had to fit in a ten square foot area and still host the special features unique to that furniture series.

With the gracious assistance from the Thomasville Company, much research, including blueprint studying and interpretation went into designing and building this piece to be identical to the original series.

Originally made in Thomasville, N.C., from southern pecan (a semi-soft hickory, but not available in the New England area), this piece was made from hard hickory, identical in grain pattern and color as the original species.

General design included an enclosed area for a TV, an open area for audio/video components, lower storage and drawers for easy access to CD/DVD/VHS, all to fit in a unit that measures 48l x 48h x 22d.

Unique features to the Fisher Park Design include, scalloped cathedral raised panel doors, classic ogee feet, front and back drawer dovetail joinery and a center dovetail track for smooth drawer operation.

Added features specific to the design include, strategically placed grommets for cordage routing, rear vents for heat dispersement and a TV swivel.

Since this is all solid wood construction, the design allows for proper wood movement with changes in temperature and humidity and can also be partially disassembled if needed (for moving) without sacrificing the integrity of the unit.
