Six piece sectional solid walnut entertainment center. I built this for a friend on the mountain here in exchange for him sawing some storm downed cherry trees for me. He supplied the walnut, which was also storm downed trees. I came away with 1500’ of nice cherry now drying in my homemade kiln:)

Very nice looking unit.

I am wondering if I am seeing this correctly. Are the door panels just flat panels that are flush with the front of the door frames? It looks really nice that way.

I wasn’t really talking about the mounting of the doors being flush. I was referring to the panels in the doors. What I am seeing looks like the back of the raised panel doors I have done, and I am wondering if you simply rabbeted the panel so that the front is flush with the rail and stile of the door.

The flush mounting of the doors is nice too though, and I remember those push to open mag latches from the stereo cabinets in the 80’s. They are handy too.

ah sorry about the confusion, but yes again. the panels are flush to the rails and styles with a roundover ( can’t remember the size) on the edges. the rails and styles also have the same roundover. i rabbeted the panels into the rails and styles and i remember now having to cut the bearing off a router bit to make the roundovers on the panels. i call it sacrificial to the completion of the job…..

Sounds like a win-winand a win. I hate to see the reactive results when people w/chain saws attempt to get themselves out from under a storm, I; feeling good about that cherry! Cabinet out of walnut ain’t bad either. LOL

Thanks for the additional info. Now that you describe it, I can see just what you are talking about. I don’t think I have ever seen that exact way of the making the door panels before. Very nice look.
