This is a 3 piece unit, 2 book shelves & center console. Center and right shelves are adjustable. I hid the power strip in in a compartment behind the drawers. Maple trim & tops, sides & shelves are birch.

I used Tung oil for the finish. The “Black Paint” was made from an idea I got from someone, mix equal parts Tung Oil & black stain. Gives a great hard finish but what a pain, took 6 coats, & lots of sanding. I would have been better off using a black lacquer & clear coat.

Looks good; very clean! I also like how open it is, though of course if it were mine it’d be full of clutter rather quickly.

Very nice, and well organized.

Isn’t black & tan a mix of dark a light beers. Hmmm makes my mouth water.
