This is back when I had real tools. I set up shop right there in the basement den, and built away. It’s constructed of poplar and maple, primed and finished with 3 coats of satin enamel. There are 3 low voltage lights in the lighted cabinet. I removed a 1950’s wet bar in front of where the cabinet is. I also stripped and refinished the mahogany paneling, which was quite a project in itself. This job was a couple of years ago. Pardon the bad photos.

Hi Ted, this looks good, IMHO I think you did an unjustice by painting it, Maple is such a nice strong good looking wood, and Poplar gets a bad rap, I think its a great build. Don’t take it personally, I’m just a hardcore wood guy, plus my wife says I’m an idiot :)
