Built-in Entertainment Center



I've always been interested in carpentry, but never had the space or the tools. My wife and I moved from an apartment in NY to a house in TN and I finally have a garage where I could build a shop. Although a little ambitious, this entertainment center was my first true build-from-scratch carpentry project. I probably spent more on materials because it was my first time and I had some waste and some mistakes, but overall I'm really proud of it. I still need to make the cabinet doors for the bottom (glass-panel shaker for the center and solid panel shaker for the towers, but it's almost done and I thought I'd enter before the contest ends. Thanks to Ryobi for making great stuff...I'm a fan as you can see in the last shot (sitting on my bench that I also made).

  • Awesome. Did you have any plans for it or did you build it on the fly? We are about to buy a new house and i want to build my own entertainment center to support the equipment we have.
