This entertainment center will go under my 50” wall mounted tv. It is made of solid African mahogany, African mahogany veneered plywood, and poplar veneered plywood. I stained the mahogany with a standard mahogany stain and sealed it all up with a water based polyurethane. As you can see, the drawers are dovetailed. I used my jig and router to mill them. Next time, I will make rabbeted dovetailed drawers. probably with some drawer slides. Thanks for looking.

Just love it when natural woods make a project pop in contrast. Great job and nice showing of the dovetails too.

That looks awesome the African Mahogany is a Beatiful wood, and the Dovetails againts the lighter wood really stand out. That finish looks flawless, was it sprayed on, or brushed on? Either way it’s great looking.

Nice work: sorry but I don’t care for a glossy finish, to each his own. To me a satin finish show off the natural look of the wood.

Thanks for the comments. Doug, I will try a satin finish soon to see the difference.
