We got a new TV recently and since it is one of those all in one units (big screen and big speaker underneath) my old entertainment center had to go. However, I still need some where to put all my components. Here is the sketchup of my new design.
I am reclaiming the wood from my old entertainment center so anything that is gray in the above pic is 3/4 Birch ply finished with black lacquer. The trim and back support are 3/4 poplar and the front supports will be 1/2 steel pipe. The opening on the bottom is for the subwoofer and each shelf holds a single component.
Here is a close up of the back showing the back support dadoed into the shelves.
So far I have demoed out the old center and cut those components down. All shelves have been dadoed. This weekend I will be finishing up the trim and getting it all ready for assembly.
