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.

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.

I came up with the floating part. Most of the online pictures of centers I liked had frames and doors or solid panels on the angled sides, but I thought that would impede the display. It was tough getting the joinery correct, It's pretty functional as a mini-display case! I'm pleased with it.

Great idea , it’s the part that makes it for me . Funny how the little things can make a such a big difference
