Here’s an entertainment center I’ve just finished for a customer that brought me a top he bought off Ebay from a closed Starbuck’s Coffe shop. It’s black walnut and maple construction. The finish is my first attempt using David Marks favorite…wipe on poly/tung oil/linseed oil blend. I think it work great!

So what’s that thing on top? Read my lumberjocks blog to find out…I’ve documented the project there!

Thanks for looking everyone!

Looks great! Is the part mounted next to the “Garbage Goes Here” sign a lazy suzan for a TV? If so, I think you picked a VERY good location for the TV…

rwyoung…the piece on top is a swiveling stand for the center channel speaker of the surround sound system. The tv is a wall hung flat screen…I have some other pics of it in place I will post to the blog.
