Category: Cabinets - Mixed Wood Entertainment Center
Loaded up for action
I just finished my Entertainment Center and it was a great learning experience for a novice. It took me about 140 hours and I made some alterations to the plan. First of all, I decided to make the carcus from Baltic Birch cabinet grade plywood, the face frame from Ambrosia Maple and the trim out of Bloodwood. I never liked projects that used the same material for everything. It just seems boring to me. I like to mix it up a little. I also purchased an extra sheet of plywood to make the center cabinet sides out of one piece each rather than bisquit joint a 3" strip to make it longer. Since I plan to upgrade to a LCD 37" TV, I did not install the hide-away doors. I also did not like the dentil molding so instead, I actually purchased some really nice Tiger Maple crown molding for the top. Mine was a lot more expensive then most due to my choice of materials but I am very pleased with the end result.
Time to Build: 101-300 Hours
