Entertainment Center and Bookshelves

Submitted by talvey50 on Sun, 04/10/2016 - 21:08

A combination of the Printers Triple Console Cabinet and the Reclaimed Wood Rolling Shelf (x2). We knew we wanted the bookshelves so I made those first. The plans were really easy to follow and I knocked out both in a weekend. Once I got those where we wanted them, it left a void that only the Printers Console could fill. That took a little longer than anticipated and was about at the extent of my woodworking skill (so far!) but it came together perfectly.

Estimated Cost
Rolling Shelves ($100 each)
Printers Console Cabinet ($250-300)
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used
My favorite stain ever....white vinegar and steel wool. Shred up some 0000 steel wool in a jar and pour white distilled vinegar. I usually let it sit for a couple of hours before wiping on the wood.
Recommended Skill Level
Intermediate

Impressive work! The combo of the Printers Triple Console Cabinet and the Reclaimed Wood Rolling Shelf sounds like a brilliant setup. Starting with the bookshelves and then moving on to the Console—your woodworking skills are top-notch! It's fantastic that the plans were easy to follow, allowing you to complete both bookshelves in just a weekend and also check Better essays there. Even if the Console took a bit longer and pushed your woodworking skills, the end result seems worth it. Well done on crafting a perfect fit for your space!
