So far I’ve finished the bottom section of this entertainment center. It’s african mahogany. I like the ribbon grain of this wood and decided to keep the doors simple so that the grain would be the focus. The top is scribed to fit the walls. I’m learning more about finishes and am getting more comfortable/confident with staining and top coats. It’s semi-glass poly over a Minwax stain. Of course, the prep is a huge factor. I appreciated the use of my Jet/Performax 16-32 drum sander on the doors. Really sped up the sanding process.
