Custom home theater cabinet

We started work on the cabinet to hold all the home theater stuff the other day. It has two upper spaces to hold the front speakers, two side spaces below that to hold the stereo equipment, two large spaces for drawers, and two center spaces for the center speaker and Xbox. We used 3/4" birch veneered plywood and birch edge tape.

First, we made the outer box:

Then we built all the inner pieces and glued/nailed them in place:

Here's a shot of the cabinet with a couple coats of ebony stain. Later that day we added a coat of satin polyurethane.

Then we headed to Rockler to get a dovetail jig. More about that in the next post.
