By “perfect” I meant that this project was one of the few that I can honestly say “I wouldn’t change a thing.” The constuction went flawlessly and everything came out as designed. (No having to say “Oh well I changed this part because of…) This happens so seldomly that I feel it deservers recognition. This piece was built to match some end tables that I built a few years ago. See if you can spot them in my gallery. This is walnut with rustic hickory accents. Good ol tong oil finish. This is a design I’ve made several times. I love the square pegs and the breadboard top! The top shelf was made spacifically for a sound bar if you were wondering why its spaced the way it is. Which leads me to my next point.
I find it so interesting how a trade as old as woodworking just keeps adapting to the “new thing.” This would not have been a typical entertainment center 20 years ago. There weren’t 60” LCD screens back then and there was need for VHS storage in the cabinet. This customer didn’t even own DVDs anymore as all his media storage has been moved to non physical space. He needed a short flat topped stand with only shelves for electronic componants. I just find it fun to see the changes this old skill takes.
