This was my first woodworking project. I built it in a friends shop with his help a few years ago. Under the TV are 4 drawers for clothes and the left side is basically a closet with a couple shelves underneath. The carcass is oak plywood and the face frame, doors and drawer faces are a mixture of red and white oak. The drawer bottoms are cedar and the drawer walls are birch plywood. The use of a mixture of red and white oak was a mistake due to inexperience. I bought the lumber rough cut from a local sawmill. It was all weathered the same and was supposed to be red oak. I should have planed the lumber before I glued it up, but instead I didn’t realize what I had until I already had some time in it. At the point, I decided I liked the look of it and kept it as is. It is mostly red oak with a few pieces of white mixed in randomly and it just gives it some character. But I probably won’t do it again.
