This is my attempt at an entertainment center. Materials were 3/4 oak plywood. I rip oak stock for trim on the plywood. Used glue and masking tape, really amazed how good it bonded. I need lots pratice on staining wood putty. All sanding was done by hand. I plan to make two drawers between the top speakers. I Decided to box the surround speakers in and was quite surprise with the sound. It also weighs a ton.
