Looks great! The idea of having the drawers act as the sides is interesting, very cool design!

Great series of videos, and a real nice entertainment center / TV stand. However, after watching you make the drawer pulls with the router, I’m thinking you could use a SawStop router, be careful. – I lost the tip of my pointer finger doing exactly this about 12 years ago. Now, I’m unable to point things out to people. Sad, so sad.

Nice video series, and a great project too!
I notice you hand plane a bit of the board to compensate for a narrow jointer. I have the same situation with a 6” jointer and 13” planer. Have you ever tried the planer sled technique? Basically you remove the guard and joint as wide as you can. Then send the workpiece through the planer (jointed face down) on a sled. The sled is nothing more than a 6-8” wide strip of plywood with a cleat attached on the leading end. The cleat makes sure the sled and workpiece stay together as they move through the planer.
The rough portion of the workpiece overhangs the side of the sled. This lets you establish a flat reference on the top face. Then remove the sled, and flip the workpiece over to plane to thickness.
It works great on boards as wide as 10”.
Thanks for the videos.
