Needed a TV console to house the components – center speaker for surround system. ( note Mission speakers ha ha ..I just noted that)
Made with quarter sawn white oak, (a few pieces of red oak in less conspicuous areas) and a piece of plywood or four for the adjustable shelves. Measures 67 long x 29H x 18W.
Finished with shellac, light oak aniline dye and multi coats of satin poly. First time using a dye and I am a believer especially when used in closed in area.
Had the leaded glass door inserts made to measure. I wanted glass so as to allow for infra red remotes also added some colored glass for effect. Trying to mimic Mission period.
All hardware from Lee Valley. I’m lucky as I have Lee Valley store in Ottawa.
Just love quarter sawn oak.!

Very nice. I like the color and what’s not love about QSWO. The hardware adds a nice detail to the piece as well.

Thanks for sharing.

You did a wonderful job on this. I showed it to my wife, and she said, “Ours is going to look like this, right?”. I could only say “Uh…no!”. Terrific project, thanks for sharing.

Really a beauty piece, Surfdude. The glass accents the white oak very well. I wonder what the Stickleys and the Greenes would have thought if they knew that their styles would one day (over 100 years later) house such high tech stuff. It is timeless.

Excellent set up. And you are very lucky to have a Lee Valley store, wish they would give up and put one here [smile]. Guess the other guys couldn’t take it though. Nice piece, love those doors. Great work.

Great job on the cabinet Dude. I must learn how to do the stained glass work.

Very sweet, I wish I’d seen your design before I built mine. There are some very nice details I wished I’d incorporated.

This is a beautiful piece. I’m sure you will get years of enjoyment. My wife and I both think that the glass doors are awesome.
