This was a large project I completed in a rush but it came out pretty good. I didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked tweeking joints and adding details. I am planning to go back and add a few details to fix obvious things.
The podium has a large area to stand or sit and a trap door to reach the rear of the electronics. The entire compont cabinet can be slid forward and out of the assembly for cleaning and maintenance.

Sounds like it has a lot of features. More pictures of some of them would be nice to see.

The top came out looking ok, but I actually measured badly extending the overhang farther than I wanted and I didn’t take into acount the depth of the TV area, so I had about 2” not coverered by the counter in the rear of that area (I’m adding a piece in black walnet to cover that area and shaping it as a pen holder). The top also was short by about 2” that the counter top missed where the steps are, I will add a decorative detail tere I think.
