I find myself building a lot of things out of necessity as I’m sure a lot of us do. This entertainment center was just one of those projects. I got the inspiration from David Marks when he had his show on DIY Network. He built a dresser with a pyramid type flair. The whole piece is made from Oak, as I had quite a bit left over from my bedframe. The sides angle up like the pyramids, but mine ended up looking much more like a castle than a pyramid, still was the look I was going for. The drawers are about half the depth of the whole cabinet, this was to accommodate the purpose of “building out of necessity”. I wanted to hook my computer up to the TV. The back of the cabinet allows for my desktop computer to fit inside without being seen. The rest of the back allows me to hide all of the cords coming down from the rest of the equipment. I have wireless mouse & keyboard, so everything stays hidden, which was really the intent. Dimensions: 33” H, 44” W, 24” D.
Lesson learned in this project? Finish everything at the same time. I used red oak stain on this project, but stained the case and the top separately. I let the stain on the top sit longer before wiping off than I did the case, so the color is a bit off.
Thanks for looking!
