That’s really beautiful Ryan. I really like the way you handled the drawers. An unusual approach for an entertainment center, sorta Shakerish, and it really works great. Thanks alot for sharing.

JP, I get all of my kiln dried wood and sheet stock from Hardwood Specialties here in Lexington. I can give you a phone # if you need it. They treat me great there.

Very nice center. Out TV just sits in the middle of the wall. This might be just the thing to get it under control.

how does the adjustment for a bigger tv work?

when I saw this I thought of our tv situation. We have vaulted ceilings and the tv/stand seem dwarfed or out of proportion. Plus I feel guilty that I bought one of those metal/glass stands (I should have built one, <sigh>).

Yours looks great!

The two end units slide out farther. The center cubbys are proud of the ends by a couple of inches allowing the crown from the ends to run past the “joint” so the ends can slide out without redoing any of the moulding. All that is required is to remove a couple of screws and reposition. I hope that made sense. If it did not I can email you a drawing.

Love the hardwood floor, and yes, the cabinet looks pretty good too!

Great job.
