Entertainment center made as a gift for friends of my daughter. I’m pretty happy with it although there are plenty of mistakes. I still think of myself as a novice and have a long way to go. Slowly but surely accumulating the right tools, techniques and skills. In particular I need to be more patient when i get to the finishing stage. This was my first effort at raised panel doors – I made several prototypes out of pine before moving ahead with the oak. The panels in the sides are 1/4” oak plywood, the top and interior shelves are 3/4” oak plywood with oak banding. The back is beaded pine/fir 1/4” plywood. Everything else was made from 4/4 oak. The finish is Minwax Old English Chestnut with several coats of satin polyurethane.
