I've finally started working on my entertainment center. I started looking into this project last summer. Since then I've asked a lot of questions, looked at a lot of pictures for design ideas, and changed my own ideas a good bit. Here is the rough sketchup model. The bottom half of the sketchup is complete. The top half will have some type of crown, arched tops of some radius, probably fluted columns, and panels on the ends. I am also gonig to put a dimmer and some lights into the top.
I'll update the sketchup more later. I'm pretty firm on the height/width of the top sections, but the details are still up in the air. I started veneering the plywood for the bottom boxes a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure I have the perfect amount of glue down pat, but I have definitely learned what to much and to little look like It's not the fastest moving project I've ever done, but the veneer is turning out good now. It's going to be one huge chunk of walnut when I'm done, with the end panels and some of the FF from Larry's stash.
