Entertainment center and storage built-in for a living room. Behind-shelf lighting is LED rope lighting. Big project—had to move 1 HVAC register and one return, plus move electrical from below base cabinets to above. Oak cabinets finished with white, semi-gloss latex paint.

Dear God, please don’t let my wife see this. I’m already up to my elbows. Nice work.

That is impressive. Beauty build, and moving the heating and electrical. Talk about work.

I agree, won’t let wifey see this

Beautiful craftsmanship, outstanding wall unit. One terrific build, sure to be the center of family fun for many years to come.

Very, VERY nice. Clean and neat and offers massive storage.
However, you will have to buy the wife a new feather duster for the shelves.
Well done.

Thanks, ya”ll—that’s nice of you guys. Yeah, the wife loves it. My daughter loves it too—she keeps her toys in the cupboards. It took about four weeks to do—yes, a lot of work.

Hope my wife doesn’t see that, or I will be busy for a while.

Very nice. You wouldn’t happen to have plans on this would you?
