When I bought my home it had a “bump out” in the wall of the living room for an entertainment center. I added the unit shown in 4 different pieces over several months.
The bottom was the first piece. It is done using maple ply for the main part of the cabinet and solid maple for the face frames. The doors on the front slide from the middle to the outside and the outside to the middle. Adjustable shelves fill the inside. The doors are trimmed with solid walnut cut on a miter with maple ply centers. This was done for stabiltiy.
The right side is a slide open DVD/CD case. It uses a double full extension slide on the bottom and a single on the top.
The left side has movable shelves and had a slide out drawer like the DVD case to allow access to the back of the components. The speaker and other wiring are terminated in the back of the cabinet with connectors for a clean hookup.
The top has adjustable shelves and halogen lights.
The walnut trim around the cabinet has maple inlay strips for accent.
The back (behind the TV) is made to remove for access to wiring.
