When looking for a house in Colorado, we could hardly find a house that did not have some sort of TV niche, which was annoying for me because we had a big entertainment center that moved with us that we couldn’t use for the purpose. So, one of my first projects in the new house was to build this built-in. This was my first built-in project (surely not the last). Of couse, I had to get the TV first to know how big to make the thing, so that was step 1. The face frame and door are made of poplar, the shelves from birch plywood. I would like to make some nicer doors for this as I think there a little (read “alot”) boring. I first stained it with a lighter gel stain (Provincial or something…) but we didn’t like how the color went with the walls and wanted something darker. So I covered it with a coat of mohagany stain, and that stuck. Now, when I build anything to match I have a double staining to do (arghhh).
