Finally finished the entertainment center after two months. The wife and I were considering selling our home and buying a new home with a larger garage but after the builder kept stringing us along we decided that a low house payment and low interest rate on our current home was just fine to stay in for a while. So with that the wife pulled out a list of projects and we got started.
I started with a google sketchup of the room to help me plan while my wife pulled out all the photo’s she could find on pinterest and we came up with a final plan. Then made a cut sheet and off to the big orange store for lumber.
The case is put together with pocket screws with pine ply from the big orange store and face frame is poplar. Latex white paint for the paint. Doors are poplar frame and mdf center. I thought I learned my lesson with latex paint on a previous project but i didn’t. The paint work is less than perfect but the wifey is happy so that makes me happy.
Thanks to my wife’s grandfather for letting me borrow a set of cabinet router bits and his woodpecker coping jig (which is awesome), otherwise this project would not have finished.
Overall a fun project, now I am getting friends and family asking when I am going to build their’s!
Enjoy and any question or suggestions are welcome.
