Ignore the dust in the close up shot, we weren’t quite finished when these were taken.
Obviously the cabinet doors above the tv got leaded glass and the top one is lighted.
The tall columns flanking the tv open for dvd storage

Now this is nice. You have hidden the dvd storage well. I like the design and construction of this one. Again what about the wood and finish.

This has been an inspiration to me. Thanks for the post.

Very nice – just starting to design an entertainment wall for our house. What is the wood / finish that you used?

Beautiful work. I went to your website and enjoyed the tour immensely. I don’t know what you charge, but I doubt you have many legitimate price-related complaints from customers.

Please keep sharing your work.

Spectacular. May I ask what wood you used (cherry?) and how you finished it? I love that look and I’m working on a table that I would like to finish similar to your wall there.

The wood is all maple, mostly veneer core plywood.
The fascia and door frames around the tv are hardwood, but that’s about it.
The tall columns flanking the TV are ply with a hardwood bead chased around the outside.
The frames and panels above the mantel are 100% ply. (the frame members are edgebanded)
As for finishing we use ML Campbell products, and Kremlin spray equipment.
As I recall on this project we applied a well thinned washcoat of sealer, followed by stain, sealer and topcoat.
