My wife wanted an entertainment center so I asked for plans on this website. Gator was kind enough to email me a couple of plans that I took and modified to fit my TV. So Gatoe, as promised, here it is.

I have never tackled anything this big but the plans were pretty easy to follow until I modified them. Mainly the center section was mostly mine, but holy crap, when you change one thing…everything else has to change! Nobody told me that!!! ;-)

I have a whole pile of cherry wood that were my “mistakes” so my wife and her sisters are going to be getting a lot of cherry jewelry boxes this year. My wife loves it and keeps telling me how beautiful it is, Although I look at it and see all the other mistakes I made ( even though thet are small ) and want to fix them.

It was a fun challenge to build thanks to all the help along the way from you..the LumberJocks.
I best get going on those jewelry boxes.
Thanks again Gator.
