Here is my new Entertainment console. The plans are from Woodsmith Guild magazine #220. It is red oak, plywood and hardwood, finished in Minwax Dark Walnut stain and Satin Polyurethane. There are also the same shelves in the end cabinets. It is 80 inches long, 28 inches high, and 19 inches deep.

It was a challenging build, making lots of moldings, and miters, not to mention those louver doors. The plans called for making 6 jigs, which worked out great. It was a lot of work, but very rewarding in the end.

That’s really beautiful. Those louvers really set that cabinet off.
