I built this for my boss out of Red Oak ply. The joints are all dadoed and I did the raised panel cab doors on my TS. The biggest challenge were the doors as they were the first cabinet doors I ever attempted to build. I wasn’t sure how they would turn out, but I’m happy and my boss is happy with the results.

Nicely done. I can see why your boss is happy, as you should be too!!!

I don’t know that I would install an entertainment center out on the drive way. However, if that’s where the boss wants it….......

The doors look great and as does the whole piece. The lighting in your shop doesn’t do the project justice. You need to take all of your pictures outside, the natural light just made the grain jump out at you. Great job! Cheers

You’re right T. D. the lighting isn’t the best in my shop. I did take it outside for that reason. As for the finish, it’s just some Watco Danish Oil. And Woodworm, there’s finish in both pics. It’s just the light that makes them look different. Thanks for all the comments!
