« Part 4: Bookcase assembly Part 5 of Bookcase and Wall entertainment unit series Part 6: final assembly stages »

This week has been spent getting the remainder of the lower bookcase units put together and ready for finishes.
We have spent some time making our molding for the top band and trimming out the rest of the unit. The final assembly will get finished in the next day or so, but we have had some good progress.

We also have made good progress on the lower unit of the entertainment center. The lower carcasses are now assembled and we have made up our beaded face frame. the next step is getting the faced frame mitered and assembled so that we can get the top ready to put on and start on the upper units.

THIS MOLDING WAS MADE ON THE TABLE SAW AND WITH THE ROUTER TABLE WITH A V-BIT

The rest of the week will be spent working on the cutting and fitting together of the top of the entertainment unit and making moldings for it and then getting the units assembled together. There is also two drawers for DVDS and CDs going in the lower unit of the entertainment center. Much more to come!

Your photo essay makes that all look so easy! LOL. I don’t have any tools like that… you sure make it fly! Nice work. :)
