Made this entertainment center of a friend a few years ago. She had a picture of what she liked and some specific dimentions. Took me about 6 weekends to make it. It is six pieses and has touch lighting. The Oak is it’s natural color. I just put a conditioner and a clearcoat on it.

Excellent entertainment center, I made one many years ago, that I need to update when we get a morn modern TV, one of the reasons the wife wont let me buy a new TV, she knows i would have to build a new entertainment center and i already have a list of projects she wants done first. I am glad you kept the wood with its natural color, other than a clear coat it wouldn’t, and doesn’t need anything else.

Now this is really a nice piece and what a nice clean job you did on it. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

This one is really nice. Great job! I made one a while back a little more modern and low profile for our new tv and really liked making it. Very nice!

I really like the natural look of the oak. Many woods look best when we do not mess with them. Very nice, clean work Craig. Well done.

It’s different, but in a very nice way. It’s beautiful and I agree with the finish. You did good.
