Mom's Entertainment Center

Editor's Choice - Mar 16, 2016

This was a gift to my mother from me for her 85th birthday,it took me all those years to finish it,HA HA just kidding :).The cabinet is oak ply with solid oak trim, the drawer holds approximately 70 DVD’s or as mom would have it about 30 VHS tapes.The leaves are carved and recessed back into the stiles with a small 1/4’’ frame or trim around them.The drawer, shelf, and top are all done in 3/4’’ oak rope molding.On the drawer, I ran a rabbit around the edge to keep the rope molding flush with the face of the drawer.The back is just 1/4 pegboard allowing the components some ventilation. Every time she gets a new mail man she has to invite them in for a minute to show them her new entertainment center,well that is what mom’s do RIGHT. She’s my best customer!!!

Woods: oak plywood solid oak

Tools: table saw planer carving chisels brad nailer sanders spray gun lacquer
