While meeting with our client I made several sketches on their wall. If you have looked at any of my Projects this should sound familiar… lol
I took a picture of the final sketch and headed home.

I then came up with several versions, using SketchUp, for our clients to view.
Here is the final ‘working’ version.

The 5 individual cabinets for this built-in were fabricated in the shop before final assembly on-site.

The doors are Tongue and groove with a small detail around the frame to match existing cabinets.
Pocket-screwed Poplar face frames, 3/4 inch Baltic Birch boxes and adjustable shelves make this a Media Center that will last a lifetime.

Johnny,

Very nice work! How did you fasten all the individual lower cabinets together? Did you fasten the face frames to each other?

Great job!

Mike, Yes.
Once on site I screwed all the cabinets together – both thru the face frames and in the back. Then installed the lowers as one unit.

Very nice, may I ask what stain or dye you used on the cabinets to achieve that beautiful color? Did you have to apply the stain or dye any differently on the poplar than you did the baltic birch carcass? Looks beautiful, I’m about to build something very similar.
