After looking at similar units in furniture stores I decided that I could build this for much cheaper. It is built entirely out of oak plywood and a few oak planks. The fireplace is an electric firebox that I got on sale at Canadian Tire. The unit has been stained espresso with three coats of semi-gloss polyurethane. I’m not sure why there are such great variations in the colour of the pieces of wood in the photos. In real life the colours all match very nicely, maybe something to do with the way the flash reflects off of different types of wood. If I were to build this over again I think I would make a thicker top for it with more decorated edges, the 3/4” ply seems pretty thin sitting all alone up there like that. Comments (good or bad) are welcome.
