My wife gets the mail before I see it and one day she plopped one of my Woodsmith mags down in front of me and said I want this…...OK, here it is dear! Actually, it is a year or so old now. Nothing special about the construction, just basic cabinet construction with a face frame. Of course I changed it a little from the pic. I did use plywood for the large panels. Crown molding was made on the table saw. I opted for glass doors instead of solid wood panels. My glass company special ordered the beveled glass. I keep the TVO and DVR in the bottom center section. There is a small fan mounted in the back of the center section keeping the electronics cool. That is a Catch 22 there…..brings in tons of dust. Of course the entertainment center is next to the fireplace. Three way touch lighting in top and bottom sections, should have put lights in middle shelves.

Nice work! Woodworking shows and guitars two of my favorite things.

Good looking piece you got there, nice job.
