This is an entertainment center I built for my now ex-girlfriends father. Everything except 1/4” Beech ply behind the upper and lower units is 100% solid Beech wood as requested by client. It is somewhere in the range of 9’ wide, 8’ tall, 2’ deep on the lower portion and about half that for the upper portion. All the boards were biscuit jointed and glued up to achieve the required widths. Finished with a custom mixed stain to match an existing railing on the staircase and finished with 3 coats of oil based poly. I did not get a picture inside the lower doors but each has 2 full width draws on top and open space below.

Looks very nice. I’m surprised that we don’t see more projects out of Beech, as it’s quite common in the north-east.

Thank you for the kind comments.

I agree Matt. I was unfamiliar with Beech until this project, but after working with it I am hooked. It is solid, relatively cheap, is very workable, and takes stains/finish great.
