This is a custom entertainment center that was built for an out-of-state customer and completed on 11-02-2007. I put a lot of work in this one with it’s elaborate details. I built the doors as one-piece MDF panels with a matching arch at the top.
The post on this project were hand made. I originally outsourced them, but the supplier never came through. With a dead line quickly coming up, I made them myself, which I’m glad I did. It was easier and quicker than I thought. I made both post together in one piece and then cut them down after I was finished. I started by gluing up solid stock from Popular. I drew the half circle on the ends of my stock. With the table saw set at 45 degrees, I took off as much as possible. The rest was removed with a hand plane. I finished up with a belt sander and a stationary sander. I didn’t take that long and saved me about $150.
