I just need to thank a lot of you all. This is the maple project, we typically struggle with the finish but this time around we sanded up through 220 and found that very effective and we ended up with a really nice finish. We did not experience any splotching at all. Of course certain grain areas might be slightly darker then other areas but that is more to the charactoristic of the wood. The customer was very happy and that is the end goal. I just wish it was installed in our house. I took pics of the doors just leaning up against our wall because I thought the natural lighting from the windows washed it out and did not show the doors well. I also took a couple close up shots of the tall doors. This thing is 7’ wide and about 9’ tall. The TV doors are 50” tall. It is actually mostly complete but I do have to install magnetic latches in order to hold the doors closed in front of the TV because the hinges I used are not self closing. We really enjoyed doing this job and look forward to our next wall unit. Maybe we will build a wall unit for ourselves some day. Our TV sits on a small TV stand that was given to us and is not even real wood, but it was the right price and holds the TV nicely, just not good looking. Oh, and there are pull out drawers behind the doors on the left and right side cabinets and just open cabinet/shelves in the middle cabinet just below the TV.
