« Part 6: bleed through Part 7 of Entertainment Center series no next part

Well I finally got the installation complete and a final payment. Last saturday we installed the unit, but the base moulding didn’t match the existing (one number off). So I had to purchase some new base. I had my brother, neal, and Heidi with me on the initial install. Neal delivered it in the van, Jeff helped with the main installation, and Heidi helped clean, hand things, and look purdy. Today I went back and spent an hour to complete the base. Heidi went with me and helped clean up. So now it’s done. All in all this was a nice little build. The painting was the crappiest part. My gun broke and I had to have a friend finish it. The paint seemed to stay tacky forever, and the cheap plywood had blead through that we had to fix with Kilz primer.

As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.

I see that your little issue with the undersized bead board turned out fine. Actually, it mates well with the raised stiles and rails of the doors directly below. I honestly like the effect.

Great job!

Looks great! I see what you mean about the carving you had to do. Makes more sense after the install.

Great looking cabinet as always. I really like this style of doors and back. Did you use sheet stock or individual boards. Thanks for posting.

God Bless

Dang, that looks great. Custom fit into the space. Clean lines and and a clean white look. I like it. But I really like the use of beadboard. That sets it apart.

Turned out nice. And the stiles really did the trick to help out with the bead board. I’ll have to remember that trick.
