Entertainment Center/Bookcase

Project Info

This large 12′ wide x 10′ tall entertainment/bookcase features low VOC paint and stain, 5/4 Sapele solid wood top, dim-able LED lighting, and room for a 70″ flat screen TV. Maximum book storage was the design parameter for this massive built-in. Using the full 10′ ceiling height, the center section is large enough for a large TV and storage for more books or ornaments. Two 12-volt LED puck lights on a hidden dimmer switch illuminate the two upper sections for display purposes.

The two piece crownmolding that was added to the kitchen/living area, was continued around the built-in, with a slightly creamier paint color for the unit itself. All shelves are adjustable. The countertop is constructed of 12 foot long x 5/4 thick Sapele hardwood boards glued up to provide a 24″ deep top that was stained and clear coated with water-based satin polyurethane.
