Preparations for the electrical project are in full swing and I’ve had no time to work in my shop this last week. Instead I dug through some older pictures and found this one that I haven’t posted of the entertainment center Heather and I finished a couple of months ago in its new home. I did the cabinet work while Heather did the finish with three coats of brushing lacquer. We like the way it turned out. We have the new internet TV on top and the DVD, VCR, turntable and sound amp below. The big empty spots are now filled with Heather’s collection of vinyl records and the drawers hold our VCR and DVD collections.
The only thing I wasn’t complete happy with was the fit of the drawers. Yes, I know they look okay but I was trying for a level perfection I didn’t achieve. It the kind of thing a guy like me thinks of. Over all I am happy with it and think it’s one of my better works of cabinetry and the first time I’ve done drawers that I’ve let come into the house. I find building drawers a bit difficult since I don’t build them much. This time I felt I did alright.
Now that the prep work on the house is done and the construction crew arrives soon, I hope to sneak out for a bit of my own woodworking.
If you need me – I’ll be in the shop.
