This project is a modified Craftsman display case featured in FWW #211 (April, 2010). I made it a bit wider to match the size of our wall mounted television, and deeper to accommodate our A/V components. The door compartment will feature game and movie storage. Some changes were also made in the construction. In addition to subtle joinery changes, the back is made of plywood as I will need to make cutouts for the A/V cables. Made with quarter sawn white oak, I will post final pics after I complete the leaded glass panels and fuming.

looks great, are you planning on doing the leaded glass panels yourself? I have a project i’d like to do that involves a glass panel and i’m thinking of doing it myself. Have you done them before, and tips for my first.
