Made from mahogany, red mahagony stain, then poly. Unit is about 15 feet wide and 8 feet tall. Took me 18 months to complete. Did not put a crown on it, knew we would be moving to another house. 2nd pic is with the TV cabinet gone, had no room for it. It is about 11 feet wide now. Still have to crown and dress it.

What took you 18 months would take me half a lifetime to build, the other half to finish. Great work. BTKS

Thanks for the comments. Since we bought a new house I had to get rid of the middle portion where the TV sits, no room for it. It is now in an office. I will space it out to fill the width of the room and fill in the blanks and crown it.
