This is a replacement entertainment center that I made after we bought our new flat screen LCD TV. I made this one to specifically fit our needs, a place for the movies, video game accessories, as well as the keyboards and remotes for my home theater PC. The cabinet is made of Birch ply with Maple edging. The doors are solid Maple with glass inserts. I free handed the leaf pattern on the glass with masking tape and sandblasted the negative spaces to create the frosted effect. This was my first time doing this so it isn’t perfect. Speaking of not perfect, I also used a new finish product Cabot Polystain, water-based stain/poly blend. It isn’t perfect but I seem to be the only one that notices (isn’t that usually the case, we are all our own worst critics). Well, I hope you enjoy this posting and I look forward to posting more. All comments are welcome (I don’t offend easily).
