I JUST COMPLETED THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE 15FT COLOSSAL MEDIA CENTER BUILT ALMOST ENTIRELY WITH MY KREG RIG JIG. IT IS BUILT COMPLETELY MODULARLY AND WILL FIT IN THE BACK OF A 8FT TRUCK BED. ALTHOUGH SOME OF THE MORE DELICATE PIECES LIKE THE BRIDGE AND TRIM ARE TRANSPORTED IN A SECOND VEHICLE FOR SAFETY. I USED ATLANTIC BIRCH FOR THE CARCASS AND POPLAR HARDWOOD FOR THE FACE FRAMING AND DOORS. SOME OF THE ADDITIONAL FEATURES ARE ADJUSTABLE SHELVING , BEAD BOARD , HAND FLUTED MOLDING IN THE PILLARS , DOOR DAMPERS , SELF CLOSING CONCEALED HINGES , AND CABLE RACEWAYS INTEGRATED INTO THE CABINETRY TO CONCEAL A/V CABLES. THE MANTLE IS HOLLOW AND CONCEALS WIRES , CABLES , AND SURGE SUPPRESSORS. ONCE INSTALLED THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE LIVING ROOM WAS AMAZING.

Great transformation from before to after !..... One of the keys to a good installation job is hiding the wires and this project was well thought out

Thanks for all the great comments. I used a commercial grade primer and paint in a semigloss finish. The primer is the most important step in the process. I always do a light sanding between coats and make sure to remove ALL dust with the shop vac and tack cloths. One tip I find particularly helpful is to use a pencil style roller paint frame with a slight nap to give the finish a slight orange peel affect. This is great for concealing inconsistencies in the wood. I try to only use one coat of primer and one coat of paint to eliminate the risk of runs and buildup.
