Our basement recently flooded so I had to build a new entertainment stand for my home theater. The interior carcass is a cherry veneer partical board but everything else is solid cherry. I incorporated the center channel into it right below the tv with a drawer below it. The drawer is not pictured but is solid cherry and dovetailed. The Tv on it is 64” to get an idea of the size. I wanted to take some pictures of it before I set everything up but got to excited and forgot, haha.

That is very, very nice work! Love the proportions; well thought out, nice leg flair, solid hardware choices, too. Sure can tell when something is made to fit your own stuff, this looks great. Congrats, well done!

That looks great. I particularly like the custom shelf for the center channel speaker.

Nice work. When I get around (and the skill) that what I want to do to replace our paste board center that’s falling apart.

Beautiful looking piece, and very well done.
