Media Cabinet

Submitted by charae22 on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 19:02

I fell in love with a Printer's Collection media cabinet at the Pottery Barn, but I couldn't afford the $$$ price tag. So I decided to build it myself. Theirs was made out of pine but I made mine out of birch. It wasn't very hard to build, it just had a lot of pieces.  I made 3 pieces, the center being 3 sections, and 2 shelf sections on the ends.  I thought it turned out great and fits our space perfectly.

Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Birch hardwood, birch plywood
Finish Used
3 coats of Minwax English Chestnut, sanding sealer, Minwax Gel Stain Hickory (as a glaze), Minwax polyurethane in satin.

Charae22, this is verympressive work! Your build looks like a piece one would find in a fine furniture store for a few thousand dollars. You have built something that will surely be a family heirloom.

Hi Charae22,

I love this version!! I am trying to find all the plans to make the media cabinet, but I am wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing your plans for your media cabinet?
