This commissioned piece was made to fit into the customers basement family room and support a large flat screen TV. They requested mahogany with door and end panels to match the paneling on the face of the bar. As you can see from one of the photo’s, it is classic casework construction with a face frame and plywood casing. the center is made to hold the “woofer” and is installed with a touch latch to allow access. the shelves are adjustable for all the components and the end doors conceal roll out dvd trays. the finish is a toned mahogany stain and General finish’s Enduro pre cat urathane applied with a HVLP sprayer. I attached the photo of the top coming out of the sander because I remember the feeling as I watched that piece of Mahogany coming out – clean; flat; and gorgeous ! The doors and framed fabric panel are all wrapped with a 3/16 “bead” giving a nice look. The unit is on wide carpet casters and has a 1/4 inch back panel with appropriate cutouts for cables etc. Next time I visit this customer, I need to get a photo of the console with the TV; it’s pretty cool! thank for looking.

It is long. I like it. I am building an entertainment center with an upper section with shelves. Is this about 8 feetish? It looks it. Is the top solid wood or ply? It is VERY nice though.

That’s a nice 20+” wide piece of walnut you have for the top. Must have been a huge slab.
