This entertainment center covers a 12’ wide by 8’ tall wall. It’s made of maple plywood and solid hard maple. The joinery is all Dados. The entire front face including drawers and doors are ¾” solid maple. The two center cabinets have pocket doors . The finish is Transtint dye, then a coat of a mix of Minwax stains and 4 coats of polyurethane. The display shelves are adjustable with ¼” pins and each side is lit with 2 mini can lights. A motorized 92” projector screen is concealed behind the top trim. All wires that runs to a projector 12’ in front of the entertainment center runs up the wall and through the attic. Speaker wiring for 5.1 surround sound and whole house audio was also run prior to construction.

This is gorgeous. It sure beats painting the wall. Very nice job. The finish looks great.

Nice job…. Now that’s a room I could get used to hanging out at: Now all you need is to build yourself a popcorn vender’s wagon to complete the decor.

I love it! The colors are to die for and the styleing is perfect. I see you’ve also went as far as installing pocket doors to the electronics bay. Good idea. Is this unit in your house?

Yes this unit is in my house. I haven’t been to the movies since and my place has become the location for sporting event parties. I was inspired by similiar built-ins i saw in media rooms of very high end houses in magazines. I’d like to start building home theaters for others, if anyone in Columbus,Ohio is looking for one. If your already on this site you probably don’t need my help, though :)

This is exactly what I am looking for. In the next year or 2 I hope to convert my attached garage into something like this. To do so I have to build a detached garage first. If I don’t I have no place to make stuff.
