These are the individual pictures for the three piece oak entrainment center that hosts my big screen TV and home theater in “This Old Crack House”.

Separate Cabinets built out of oak along with an adjustable oak top allows for easy up grades in TV sizes as they change with out building a new Entertainment Center.

I found this plan in a woodworking magazine and modified it to meet my needs.

It is finished in natural and serves my needs well.

what a great place to have a few friends get together. The popcorn machine is a perfect addition to this room.

I really like spending time in this room with friends and family.

I hope to some time this winter finish this room out with old movie posters and memorabilia. I have painted it in “theater ” like colors and just got the popcorn machine.

With the addition of the “wii” now Friday night bowling has really become a regular on going custom.

When I designed this room this is exactly what I had in mind and wanted.

It just took a little while to finish this part of the project.

It seems there were so many other priority’s that came first.

This project is one that not only is not that hard, but very functional. I would encourage you to build it.

I found a plan ( not sure where, I think in “Wood” and modified it to fit my needs and methods of construction.

Good luck!

I have a lot of different hardware ware in my shop I keep in stock.

Because I build a lot of Mission along with Arts and Crafts I use a lot of copper. I keep various pieces of specialixed pieces in stock.

I will say that because of not only the high prices this hardware commands along with the fact hardware has a way of disappearing, Because of that I keep a lot less of it in stock.

It seems most all hardware is readily available these days. I can have it in a matter of just a couple days. Hence I figure why risk losing or misplacing that hardware and tying up my cash.

Dusty, my apologies! I wasn’t clear…

My other hobby is home theater, and I was asking about your HT equipment. (I know, off topic for LJ, but still, I was curious)
