We Just purchased a new large television and needed an entertainment center. My Daughter in law helped to find me some old Barnwood. The Top is a single piece that was on a Cattle loading ramp from her grandfathers farm. The sawmill marks are easy on the eye. The front face frame is all mortise and tenon. I left some of the wood untouched. Some I planed and some lightly sanded. The top was finished with BLO. The doors are punched tin. I used a scratch awl and a blunted flat screw driver.

It’s really fun to see the chronology here. Your project, the speaker towers, and the high tech tv. Reminds me of my place! Nice project. The tins go great with the concept…............;-j

That looks great. There is so much to look at but it all looks goes together as well. Nice job.

Fantastic set up! Love the rustic look and the use of reclaimed woods. It has lots of character and great details especially the cool tin doors. It makes such a cozy place. Great job!
