This is the first entertainment center that I built (before the flat screen). This was also an earlier project with alot of room for improvement, but it served it’s purpose. I made this because we had moved into the new house and were expecting company (we had planned a party) and the tv was just sitting there in the middle of a huge blank wall with a sofa table next to it with all of our components on it and wires and boxes of dvds, cords and remotes everywhere. So I had to do something quick so I threw this thing together on a saturday afternoon from the scraps from my grandma’s kitchen cabinets. It remained unfinished for a couple of months, after which I finished it with Minwax’s bombay mahogany stain/poly blend. I had a terrible experience with this stuff and would not use it again. But over the years that I had this piece in my home, I received many compliments so I guess you could say that this is another case of being my own worst critic.
After making the new entertainment center, this piece has found a happy home at a good friend’s house. He is extremely happy with it.
