Built-in entertainment center, storage, file drawers and display shelves in family room. Designed specifically to hold this TV and stereo equipment. Doors that cover TV are bi-folding so they can be tucked away when using TV. Base molding is integrated into lower doors so that, when the door is open, heavy items can be slid right in rather than lifting over a frame. Includes 4 file drawers and an overhead light in center space. Made primarily with materials from Home Depot: 3/4 plywood, 1×3 poplar, white paint. Last picture is of the space in our added-on family room before the cabinets were built.

That looks fantastic! Plus the fact that you got such great results using the crappy wood from HD makes it even more impressive! Keep it up.
