This credenza style entertainment center was a commission project. It’s all white oak with a golden oak stain and two coats of clear lacquer. The top has three coats. It’s 66” long x 33” high x 20” deep at the top. The only things I didn’t make were the bun feet. I added a fifth foot to support the middle. I turned the column and then cut it in half to make the half columns. The clients last name starts with an “H” hence the walnut monogram above the column. The center doors have smoked glass and the slot in the back is for cords. The drawer glides and the door hinges are soft close.

Nice craftsmanship. Probably took three guys to move it? LOL! For me everything works but the handles on the drawers? Will be a forever piece for your customers.

Looks great,

especially since it was a commissioned piece…always makes it a little sweeter…

DocK: Pssst, don’t tell anyone, but I made it from a picture from a local high-end furniture store.

Hey Dan, NICE PROJECT. Haven’t been on here in a while so a little late to the party…lol. I have a dresser my great grandfather made that has half-columns like that. It’s quite beat up and i hope to refurbish it someday. Its made of cherry & tiger maple drawer fronts a full inch thick! Again, nice work.
