I modified the Rolling C Cart Plan to build this center console for my home theater. My dimensions are a bit different than Ana's. 24" long and 19" high. In order to keep the center of gravity back I doubled the center splines to give it a bit more heft aft of the cup holders. It was made from 1x10's as to not be too wide. I skipped the rolling wheels as it isn't going to be moved once in place. I used 2 coats primer, 3 coats semi-gloss black, and 3 coats of Minwax PolyCrylic to finish it off. All with light sanding with 240 grit paper on my Bosch Oscillating tools to smooth out each layer. It took about 4 days with all the painting, sanding, and drying time involved. I love this build and plan to build 2 more for the back row of theatre seats.
