This Entertainment Center is a commisioned piece. The Center is nade from Cherry plywood and solid Cherry for doors and trim. The plans are from the May 2006 issue of American Woodworker. The plans were altered a bit to fit a specific television. The set fits to within a half inch of the sides and top. The to upper side cabinets are lit on the inside. The glass shelves let the light in the whole cabinet. The “switch” for the lights is a touch switch on the upper right hinge.

Thanks for looking

PS In the 3rd picture, there is nothing wrong with the set, it is just me trying to get into the picture….8-)

Lighting: cool.
And the switch?? really cool

I thought I was watching Captain Kangaroo there for a minute. :-)

To all who looked at my project, I thank you for your kind words. Just an update, the person who commissoned me to build it is moving and he wants me to disassemble the piece to be moved and reassemble it in their new home. He told me that in looking for a home he wanted to make sure the new house had a special place for it.

Jimmy, I hope this is an encouragement for you. If you look at some of the magazines out there, Fine Woodworking, Woodworks, this is quite simple, just large. Keep working at it and you will have people admiring your work.
