Some call this an armoire, Norm calls it a media press. It is made from Oak ply and solid oak. Arched raised panel doors. Full extension ball bearing slides with dovetailed corners. Center divider is removable so it can become a bedroom entertainment center if needed. 2 things I would change if doing it again. 1, I made it 24” deep since I already had 22” slides left over from a previous kitchen which I bought slides by the case, so I would make it 18” deep instead. 2, I would have used cherry instead. Being a shop teacher, I need some cherry furniture. I have about 100BF sitting on my lumber rack waiting to be used for something special. What was I thinking, my wife’s birthday wasn’t special enough. It was actually the rest of the bedroom set I have built earlier in my woodworking career has been oak, so I stayed with that theme. I would have been a good time to change the decor. Anyway, my wife still loves the project and uses it daily.
