« Part 6: "Finishing" Up Part 7 of Entertainment Center series no next part

This is the last blog on my Media Center Project as taken from Woodsmith Magazine late last year (with a few changes) I’m still waiting on some back ordered hinges from Rockler. I wanted to get this into the house for the Super Bowl but I guess March Madness will do. Wifey not too hot on the spalted panels, but she may have to live with them. Final version turned out to be quite massive having to add to height and width to accomodate larger TV than original Woodsmith plans. Bring on the Madness, my recliner and I are ready.

That is a MASSIVE piece! Quite a bit of work there that involved a lot of skill and craftsmanship.

It turned out great!

This piece certainly is the focal point of the room without a doubt. That is a really nice piece of furniture that compliments the television well. The panels give the piece a lot of character and visual interest.

I just hope you had help moving it in there. I would hate to hear that you hurt your back trying to set it up without plenty of help. :)

This has been a fun series to follow. Thanks for letting us tag along.

Outstanding job, Dock! I know you’ll get a lot of enjoyment out of looking at this over the years (and a lot of compliments too, I’m sure).

This is an excellent piece of craftsmanship.

Great looking et center. I wish I had enough room in my living room for that. I love your spalted panels. They look fabulous. Super job.

Looks great Doc. Good luck watching the games. I would get distracted looking at the fine craftsmanship.
