I finally got around to building the entertainment center last year.
It took quite a bit longer than I would have liked to get started. (Frankly because there was a little procrastination on my part but also because I was angling for a new TV.) Once the TV purchase was approved the design was finalized (and approved) construction began.
It was built of solid oak, weighs a ton and consisted of 4 components. I kind of have a facinatuon with the color black but have found few stains that allowed the wood grain to show through. I like the way it turned out but now realize that the dark stain hides more of the workmanship than I prefer.
It’s time now for its complimenting bookcase.
The bookcase will carry over a similar design style with the exception of an enclosed lower unit and a smaller footprint. Construction techniques, material, and stain will be similar to the entertainment center.
Let’s get started…
