This wall unit is for a 50 inch TV. It is made with luan plywood. I liked the look of the wood but knew I had a challenge when it came to the edges. The finished wood is paper thin and the plywood is only 1/8”. It would not be possible to sand the edges if I was to miter it. I decided to paint some pine trim black to cover all the edges.

This is the finished unit. I installed lights with a switch under the unit and over the first shelf. Ended up putting a shield in front of the upper lights to keep it from shining in everyones eyes at night. The bottom light I lightly painted black to tone down the intensity of the light also.
