How to Make a Built-In Entertainment Center

We rebuilt some outdated shelving to make a custom built-in entertainment center. This project was sponsored by LG.

When we moved in, the shelves were too low to fit my flat tv, so I had to crudely knock out some space. The initial construction was also pretty dated, with routed face frames and thin, inset doors that needed to be rebuilt. I got out some hammers and ripped out the old pieces so that I could get an accurate layout of the space. Once I got the dimensions of the empty area, Josh made a 3d model of the new entertainment center. We took this model and made a materials and cut list and got to work. One mistake I see beginning DIYers make is that they try to make a piece of furniture inside an existing space. Meaning, they build a piece that should be square and plumb inside a space that is neither of those things. So, for this project, we are going to build everything in sections in the workshop and assemble them together in the empty space. This drop-in technique may leave spaces...
