Seems like I am always making something for someone else. Finally, something for me. Goes great with my lazy boy and HD tv. Made with red oak and stained a red mahogany. Birch drawers for DVD’s. Comes apart in 4 pieces and has 12 heavy duty castor wheels for easy access to back. Adjustable shelves with recessed shelf standards. All oak facing is lapped.

Hi Steve;

Very nice work!

Sounds like you spent some time figuring out the design for a convenient use of this piece.

Time spent in the planning stages sure does pay off.

What a good idea with the castors, that’s one to remember.

WOW that is just beautiful.. You did a perfect job on it. I love the colors you used… Wow it just looks so professional.. Big name furniture stores can not even come close to this kind of beauty. Just a question did you use plans or all origninal ideas.. Very Well Done Thank you for sharing..

Very, very nice. I like the reddish color. You just can’t touch this quality of construction in the stores, ya know? And yes, these systems really do go well with a Lazyboy recliner and HDTV! I should know!

No wonder you show off the drawers.

What a super(b) job.
The full extension slides are just what was needed.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Castors! that’s briiliant. I would have spent my life trying to strong arm it around everytime I needed to get behind it.

Great design and the castors make it a useable piece to be able to fix and update.
