This is an entertainment center that was completed in March 2006. It has a bay window center section with identical but inverse side bookcases. I named it Matlock after the customer that I built if for. The top has crown molding and a carving in the center. It also has a lighted display are at the top of the center section. The crown molding as an added rope molding added to it

Here are some of the building pictures:

That is cool, best hidden bed you have done… I give up, where does the bed come out?

Hi Chris

Great looking unit. You did a beautiful job on this piece. I can see you are a master of other things other than beds. Wher does it come apart? Thanks for posting.

God Bless

Tom, it breaks apart at the bookcases. It is in 5 pieces: two bookcases, a light bar (header), the bay window style base, and an adjustable shelf

Very nicely done, proportions are right on, the applique is well placed and sized. Your client should be very pleased, as should you.
