Entertainment Center

click on image to view larger pictureThis entertainment center is made of oak plywood, faced with solid red oak featuring shop made molding, all stained with Min-wax Provincial and top-coated in polyurethane. It is one of my many custom designed pieces. I sized everything to fit my particular components and the drawers are sized to fit the large Disney sized vhs tape boxes. Between the drawers is a door covered cupboard sized to just fit my small collection of record lp's. The top and base moldings are of my own design adapted to what has been used for years by other craftsmen. Just my proportions are maybe different or unique. The basic cove and bead has been historically used in many ways by many different craftsmen.The following picture shows a close up of the base.
