This oak entertainment center fills an alcove in my finished basement recreation room. I designed the 3 cabinet modules to fit the space available. Because my shop is only 325 square feet, I had to move each glued-up carcass out of the shop before gluing and clamping up the next! (You guys with big shops will get a good laugh out of that). The speakers are a custom design as well. I have a neighbor with an electrical engineering degree who builds audio equipment as a hobby. His CAD program gave me the cabinet dimensions for the speakers, and he chose the speakers themselves and built the crossovers. Their design copies models that are $7,000/pair retail. Cost of wood (MDF core oak plywood), speakers, and electronic components came to about $700. And they sound as good as the $7000 ones! The shelving units for the audio components have cutouts on the back to vent heat, and allow cables to connect the components. The finish for the cabinetry is good old miniwax (golden pecan stain), and polycrylic finish (3 coats).

Ya I almost laughed. Then remembered I’ve had to do stuff outside with a 900sq foot plus shop. Nice work for any shop.
