The unit is approximately 36” wide and tall and abut 21 inches deep. It will be donated to a local nursing home to be raffled off for the activity fund for the residents.

I really like the looks of that piece. I’m planning an entertainment console and might do something similar. Nice job.

Very nice job Randy! Something about mission style just speaks to so many. You’ll have to come back on after the raffle to let us know how much she went for!

Spot on with your inset doors and drawers. This should fetch a good sum for the raffle. Nice work!
