Entertainment Center


This was supposed to be a Hannukah present for Terry. Thanks to Harbor Freight Tools, it had to be a Christmas Present.

I've gotten the materials for my latest project. All the pieces are cut and waiting. Waiting for some new tools to arrive. I ordered a Milwaukee Router which should handle the rigors of doing raised panel doors and a Milwaukee finishing sander with sawdust sucker so I don't have to get so much dust in my lungs. These haven't arrived, yet.

The entertainment center plans come from a book of furniture plans I bought. The book is filled with inexpensive and easy projects to build. Of course, I'm going to change the plans and make it bigger, since the box is too small for our television. The book, having been written I guess when the biggest tv out there was 27". Which of course is the reason we're going through this exercise in the first place. When we bought our home entertainment center, the old tv did not have appropriate jacks to receive the dvd signal. So, we had to buy a new tv and the new tv was too large for the beautiful entertainment center we received as a wedding gift from Terry's parents.

For the new entertainment center, I am using birch hoping that when I varnish, the grain will just jump. I chose boards with a lot of variety in color and grain.

So, I finally went down to Lowes and bought the Router, again.

And now, we're making sawdust, again.

It's starting to come together. The two lower doors are assembled and the carcasses are coming together. Tomorrow, I should be able to assemble the two larger doors and finish the carcasses. After that, I'll do a couple of light coats of varnish and take the whole mess downstairs for final assembly.

Brought the pieces inside and began assembly. This two youngsters grabbing at the equipment is getting old. So, we set up the two pieces and await the front piece and doors to tie it all together.

The Doors are varnished and awaiting the door frame. Had a bit of trouble getting the door frame to go together properly. Third time was a charm, though.

Now that the door frame varnish has cured, it's all coming together and starting to look like something. Interestingly, with the doors on, it doesn't look quite so imposing.
