Been checking out the site for quite a while so i decided i better sign up. lots of great talent here.
This entertainment center was built for a friend. Top and bottom was inspired by the wood whisperer’s Walnut low entertainment Center (thanks marc). Unit was built out of red oak and oak plywood and finished with about 6 coats of poly.

Awesome job on the entertainment center. I had watched Marc’s podcasts on the project and liked his ideas.
Have you/are you going to add glass or panels to the doors?

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen.
my friend is gonna put the glass in the doors himself. Was kind of a joint project between us for his wife’s xmas present. He bought the wood and i designed and built it. now he’s installing the glass and doing the finish. He’s a part-time blacksmith and has been helping me with the hardware and wagon wheels for my covered wagon bbq pit project so we kinda help each other. Pics were taken in my sheetmetal shop (green machine behind it is a press brake)
