The pull-out DVD shelves are great – nice idea.

Nice job Donnie. The pull-out shelves are really nice. So, how many DVD’s can they hold?

Welcome Aboard, Donny!

Hey that look like one Super COOL Entertainment Center!

Those Cases, apparently on heavy duty sliders, pulling out like that, really gives you a lot of storage!
COOL Idea! What kind of sliders did you use?

Thank you very much!

Nice pattern matching. Probably took two guys to get it into place? 1”x walnut? Did you plan for your next upgrade? LOL. Mynext tv will be sitting on top of my entertainment center. The opening will have shelving.

Great job!

Doc – this was my first time working with walnut so i wasent to happy with the color matching of some parts but hay live and learn. O and i moved it by myself the hole thing is in 4 peices 2 towers, center peice and a top so i could easly move it. funny thing is i made the towers and top then a year later got the tv and made the center. If u look real close the center is 1 1/2” deeper than sides give it a steped look to hide the fact that it is 4 differnt peices.

Have your say...
