    Arts and Crafts/Mission Style Entertainment Center

    Finally... a completed project from my shop this season! I seem to get time for fewer and fewer projects these days, and this ones been on my bench since spring. Its an A&C/Mission style entertainment center made of quartersawn white oak and oak ply, with cherry bow tie inlays on the top. Dimensions are roughly 68 x 22d x 29 high. Construction is mainly glued dados and pocket holes. The corbels are doweled, and the door grids are half lapped. The finish is a mixture of early american and colonial maple, with a poly clear coat. Most of the QSWO was salvaged from the Widmer Wineries.

    Lovely, just lovely. You ought to be very proud of yourself.

    Prolific is not the same as good - in most cases. There are exceptions. However, the point is to enjoy the build and then enjoy the results.

    You done good. Enjoy.
