This was my first woodworking project. I built it in a friends shop with his help a few years ago. Under the TV are 4 drawers for clothes and the left side is basically a closet with a couple shelves underneath. The carcass is oak plywood and the face frame, doors and drawer faces are a mixture of red and white oak. The drawer bottoms are cedar and the drawer walls are birch plywood. The use of a mixture of red and white oak was a mistake due to inexperience. I bought the lumber rough cut from a local sawmill. It was all weathered the same and was supposed to be red oak. I should have planed the lumber before I glued it up, but instead I didn’t realize what I had until I already had some time in it. At the point, I decided I liked the look of it and kept it as is. It is mostly red oak with a few pieces of white mixed in randomly and it just gives it some character. But I probably won’t do it again.

Looks nice….....not too much room for the TV to breathe but if you haven’t had any issues yet, it must be okay. Looks like it filled the bill for some much needed storage.
Well done.
