Sorry for the poor quality pictures, the lighting in the living room is in need of another lamp or two…
I built this entertainment center for my wife because she was tired of having the wires hanging out the back of our old one. We have a rabbit that runs free through the house and he tends to chomp on exposed cords.
The design is loosely based on mission style/arts and crafts and it also has asian influences. The legs are what strikes me when I see this in person. They are square at the top and gently transition into a full round at the base. I created this to match a coffee table that I made (post to follow).
The dark wood is sapele, which has been stained to almost an ebony black. I could have used almost any wood for this but I was able to use sapele scraps out of the trash bin at work, so, that would do. The light colored/streaky wood is tigerwood, also called gonoco alves. The top is a breadboard construction and sports a seagull stone inlay. My last name means seagull in old German so I have taken to inlaying that seagull wherever appropriate.
Any comments, criticism or questions are quite welcome!
