A entertainment center for my place. Taking some basic designs off of other examples and adding some arts and crafts designs to them.
Entire top and bottom are made from red oak. Many mortise and tenon joints as well as thru-tennons. Doors are full-inlay, which was my first attempt, and turned out pretty good. Thankfully the hardware has adjustments in 3 directions. Solid top for the bottom part with breadboard ends, built the same way I did my coffeetable ends.
The top was built after the bottom and set on aftewards. Building it with 2 levels on top and 2 widths for each top lead to some interesting design concepts. Built to allow for wood movement. The main rear slats are shiplaped.
I also made a telivision holder vs purchasing one, which worked out great. It’s attached to the rear panels with an additional plywood backer on the back side.
All the wood was stained with Varathane Gunstock to match the other peices I’ve made.
I just totaled the mortise and tenon joints, and there are 52 in the entire project! Fun to build.
