Default entertainment center

We needed a place to put our new tv, so I designed and made this entertainment center. It's made mostly of oak, with other wood for the inlays. We live over 100 miles from a source of wood, so I rely on wood from the internet -- which means under 5' pieces. That's why the horizontal sections are so complicated. Here are a few pics:

That is a wonderful looking piece of work, particularly given the short pieces you're stuck with using. My wood supplier is about 70 to 80 miles round trip, which is nearly third of a tank in my old truck. So I understand the economics of having to travel 100 miles each way to get wood.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Dave, Nice looking entertainment center. I'll probably steal some of the design to build one sometime this year if I can find the time. Thanks for sharing.
