I made this unit for the basement rec area from Mahogany and Maple. After looking at it for several days, I thought “I’m going to have to make another one of those for upstairs”

This is really beautiful.
The choice of darker colour for outer parts and lighter colour for the inner parts ( doors & drawe front) is brilliant! More likes the concept of the strong protects the weak…LOL

Don, very nice.

I built this same entertainment center last year, but I like the stain and contrast choices you made better. I see that you opened up the back in the four access areas for cord and cable entry. I chose oblong horizonal access holes but I can see that leaving a bigger opening makes it easier for hifi equipment entry/exit.
