Part of the reward for getting to a certain point in our whole house renovations is a new, and first for us, flatscreen TV. So, I began the entertainment center and ordered a 60” Sony Bravia.
The unit is floating, bolted to the wall with big lag screws. It has two shelves with spacers in between. It’s made of hard maple with a cherry frame and the rest is cherry. The woods are chosen to provide some contrast (but not too much) to the oak that pervades the rest of the house’s woodwork and floors. We’ve had a busy, crowded house before this all began. With walls taken out and most of our junk cleared out, we’re trying to be more minimalist in our house and furniture. So, this entertainment center is simple, not ornate, and without legs.
I’ve still got my old Polk audio tower speakers to veneer and place on either side of the entertainment center. Then all will be complete with it. Next, on to the kitchen, the last room to be done.
-- The smell of wood, coffee in the cup, the wife let's me do my thing, the lake is peaceful.
