I built this entertainment center for a co-worker recently. It is made of white oak and white oak plywood (red oak beadboard stained to match).
Things that I learned:
1. Charge more – after materials, my labor came to be about $6/hr
2. Allow for less customization – They wanted a recessed back panel to allow for cord storage
3. Plan your transportation beforehand
On a side note, I built a Thien separator before I started and I am damn glad I did. I emptied my 20 gallon trash can 4 times during this build, while only 1/4”-1/2” of dust and wood are in the dust collector bag.
