Design for the People

Industrial Design: Entertainment Center

open and shut views Enlarge image

Frustrated with a mess of a/v components, tapes, DVDs and miscellanea, I needed an entertainment center to fit my needs. Unable to find one to my specifications that cost less than $2000, I designed my own and built it for less than $500.

It's made of all 3/4" hard maple plywood and maple trim. It's finished with hand-rubbed tung oil and brushed stainless hardware. The doors when opened hide completely into pockets.

My draft plans for my wood project.
