This is my attempt to build an entertainment center, by far the largest size project I’ve attempted (which is probably why it took most of this year for me to build). I really like Greene and Greene furniture, so I used that style as the inspiration for this project. The face frame and drawers are quartersawn red oak, and the cabinet itself and the door panels are quartersawn or riftsawn red oak plywood. I used General finishes mahogany stain and satin poly for the finish. Eventually I plan to build accompanying bookcases on each side.

Perhaps a tactical error on my part was making the cabinet just the right size for the current TV, thus precluding myself from upgrading to a larger TV in the future:)

Nice. Where’d you get quarter sawn oak from?

I really like this Dave. The styling is spot on!

As far as the TV…that’s my kind of mess up…

Love the drawer pulls. Did you buy them or make them yourself?

Thanks everyone for the comments, and to answer Broglea, yes I made the pulls for the drawers…through a fair amount of trial and error nonetheless.
