I finally finished our new entertainment center. Dimensions are 49” wide by 36” tall by 21” deep. It is made from oak plywood and red oak with drawers constructed of poplar. Cabinet and drawers are stained with Minwax golden oak stain. Drawers are finished with shellac while the cabinet has 4 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal Satin oil and urathane topcoat. The drawers ride on 20” full extension drawer slides. The top doors are dark gray quarter inch tempered glass. This represents my first attempt at raised panel doors. They turned out pretty good I think. One of the benefits of this project is that I got to finally purchase the raised panel router bits. The downside is that the BOSS has 3 or 4 other projects she wants built with raised panel doors. But, you buy ‘em to use ‘em so that’s OK.
