« Part 5: Almost ready for finish on bookcase Part 6 of Bookcase and Wall entertainment unit series Part 7: finish/ delivery/ installation »

Well, the final assembly stages are coming together.
We have spent quite a bit of time cutting and fitting together the pieces for the upper and lower units of the entertainment center.
quite a bit of time was spent setting up the router with the bead detail for the face frames of the units. A jig was built to work around the bit set that I came across at the IWF show.

Once the jig was built and set up the actual cutting the frames went very quickly. some final assembly and glue up and a very clean sharp look to our units.

Now the upper and the lower units are built and mostly put together and today time was spent making and assembling the endcap decor both the lower and upper units of the entertainment pieces.

Next is the tedious sanding and filling nail holes and preparing all the units for stain, finish and toner effects. Lots of prep work to get to the spraying!
This update will be the last until the finished products. We will provide finished pictures here at the shop as well as the install and final look.
Thanks for following on this project and support and encouragement.
