My son asked me if I would help him build a wall mounted entertainment center. Naturally I told him I would…he drew up a plan and we discussed using oak plywood with solid oak facings but I was digging through my “stash” and found some 11” x 1” oak planks that I think I had hid from myself. Joined the two boxes using a modified box (finger) joint and glued up. Backed all the joints up with dowels. Not sure it was necessary but we both thought it would look cool. Glued in a “back bone” on the base cabinet so it could be mounted directly to the wall without using any type of bracket. The small up right cabinet has an adjustable shelf that uses 1/4” shelf pins. Bored holes for the AV and power cables and will add a power strip underneath before installing. Finish is hand wiped Minwax Provencial stain. It sort of, kind of turned out like his drawing…lol

A perfect way to entertain the day with the build. The dowels look good with the design. Nice joint effort Buster.

Making a nice looking and functional piece is great but doing it as a Father and Son team is even better.

Another fine job by the BusterB boys, no, buster and junior, no, that’s not right either, fine job by the whatever your last name is boys. Close enough. Nice looking center. You are correct on the dowel job, looks cool. I’ve never used that particular stain, but I will have to in the future as it looks really good, I like that shade. Nice looking unit gentlemen, keep up the good work.
