It was finally time to build an entertainment center. The tv is mounted on the wall so this is just something simple to hold the components. Cherry, walnut and oak and the shelf is adjustable. Every project I try to do something different. This is the first time I’ve made raised panels. I wanted to give it a little something extra and I think they came out alright. The last two shots are a before and after. Katie, my dog, used to sit on the receiver to look out the window so I bought some foam, and black cloth and whipped her up a new seat out of some scrap oak. Now I just have to convince her to use it. Although it doesn’t get a lot of direct sunlight I know the cherry on the top will darken fairly quickly and I’m hoping that will just add to the look. It’s finished with a few coats of tung oil.

That’s a nice solution to get your components up off the floor. I like the contrasting colors of the walnut and cherry. If you get tired of using it for this purpose, it would make a nice end table, night stand, or file cabinet if you added drawers.

Nice job.
