Entertainment Center for 60" Flat Screen LED TV

I used the plans from JRLwoodworking and the pictures from AZCA33 and combined them to create an entertainment center to hold my new 60" flat screen tv. I priced new entertainment centers at furniture stores for a nice entertainment center to hold a large tv and the price was around $2000. I looked around online and found a couple of websites of handmade entertainment centers and decided to give it a try. I had never made anything remotely his large or detailed, but with the plans and some patience, I was able to bring this thing to life. I couldn't have done it without the help of this website or jrlwoodworking. I am very proud of this piece of furniture and plan to cherish it for a long time....

Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Birch, Pine, Poplar
Finish Used
Black latex paint (satin), white latex paint (satin), and Polyacrylic (satin)

We painted the bare wood with the white latex paint first. After a couple of coats, my wife used the black paint on the areas that she planned to look distressed. We painted over the black with the white until fully covered. She sanded the white until the black came through like she wanted and then we coated the entire thing with a polyacrylic coat.

Wait a moment, that is a super WOW!

Really nice work. The piece is worthy of a magazine cover. Very well done.

Hi RAZORBACKFAN, I am so excited to see this build from our plans at jrlwoodworking.com! This is absolutely beautiful. It looks like a very difficult project, but with the step by step instructions and going through it a few times, it really can be done by a handy do-it-yourselfer. I hope you enjoy yours as much as we enjoy ours. The best part of it is telling everyone you built it. Nobody would believe it unless we had the pictures to prove it.
