Based on the entertainment center from Woodsmith Magazine #180 . I just customized it a bit by extending the height of the center piece and widening the bookcases to make it hold more (we have a lot of books!). I love sketckup for that one! First real crack at carcasses and face frames. More pictures to follow as the process progresses.

Picture #2 is the mockup of the carcasses now that they’re all built. I started staining the interior since it’d be easier now rather than after the face frames are in place. Staining and poly the bases while I build the face frames and doors/drawers are my plan of attack, then full assembly.

Thanks everyone, I’ll post pictures of the process as I go; definitely a finished picture. @Routerisstillmyname, it’s actually birch plywood. I’ll be staining it, just not 100% certain what color yet. I leave that up to my wife!
