Entertainment center

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.

Darell, nice job on the entertainment center. It has nice balance to the design and you did a good job on the construction and finish. The raised panels look good as well. They add a nice visual detail to the piece.

Your wife sounds a lot like mine. I no sooner get one project knocked off her list when she adds several more to it. But, with the success of this one, I can see where you could leverage them for some more tools. Go for it.
