I made this TV Entertainment center for my daughter and her “soon to be husband” for a 2010 Christmas gift. The unit is equipped with eight 18” dovetail drawers used to house DVD’s. The center area has a shelf and pullout for an electrical unit and any other items. The glass top is four feet long by eighteen inches deep with an arch in the front. The glass sits on six legs (which match the feet) allowing space below and on top of the unit for additional electrical devices. The glass has a large hole in the rear center to accomadate wires from the television and continues through the top of the unit into the inner cabinet coming out though the bottom. This allows the unit to sit flush to a wall without a number of wires being scattered about. It is made from maple plywood, using natural stain color and a clear satin finished. The top and bottom are also made from 1 1/2 inches thick plywood, banded with hard maple stained in a black to give it contrast. The pulls are arched to match the smoked glass contour. “I hope she likes it”.

This it absolutely beautiful and well built.
This is something that can’t be bought anywhere. I’ll bet she loves it. I am envious of your design abilities.
I would like to do one of a kind pieces like you obviously do.

This is one beautful cabinet! Well done! Love the grain flow on the front and the glass sets it off. The black really defines it as well. They will be thrilled!

Great piece Tony. Crisp, clean design. And the glass shelf with the supports is very distinctive. A lot of thought and work went into this piece and it shows. I’m sure they will love it. Family heirloom for sure!

That’s cool! Love the light and dark tones. No better gift than a gift handmade by dad!
