Stylish Entertainment Center

Abundant storage, low cost, a stylish look, simple construction... This entertainment center checks all the boxes.

Creating space for a large-screen TV and the multitude of electronic necessities that go with it doesn't have to be an expensive, drawn-out endeavor. The solution is to couple time and cost-conscious modular construction with a lean, contemporary look. As you can see, this combination really hits the mark. The full version comes with loads of storage — more than enough to hold all the gadgets you'll ever accumulate. The center cabinet will accommodate a 50" TV with room to spare. Behind the glass doors below, you'll find convenient pull-out storage for all the extras. Flanking the center cabinet are two tower cabinets with both drawers and open storage. And if this isn't enough, a bridge connects the towers to round out the storage and balance the appearance. To streamline the construction, all the large case panels are cut from economical birch plywood. Poplar face frames assembled with pocket screws finish off the case fronts. But, if your needs and ambition are more modest, consider building just the center cabinet as a stand-alone piece.
