I was making this media center for my mom – she picked it out from a catalog – so I replicated it

I was just about to install the drawers and deliver it to her

She passed away the same week – she never got to see it finished

Black Walnut exterior with birch ply interior boxes – I may add some handle hardware for the drawers at a later date

Sorry to hear about your loss. It looks like a project she probably would have really enjoyed.

its a shame she didn’t get to see it finished. It would have made her very happy. I’m sure each time you look at this it will remind you of her.

Sorry to hear that bad news. This is a very nice, smooth looking piece. I like that little bit of sapwood there.

I am truly saddened to hear about your loss and that she never was able to see what a great piece of work you made for her.

I looked at the pictures before I read your post and I was really impressed and a little jealous. I am in the process of assembling a built-in low cabinet across the front of my living room and I am just going to paint it white and put a concrete counter top on it. Your beautiful media center made me jealous and mad that I didn’t go for something a little more exquisite like your project. Your mom would have absolutely loved the media center. Great job.

+1 on the sap wood use. Perfect combo of natural and architectural elements. Really just beautiful.
