I’m currently building an entertainment center for our family room. Building a piece like this can seem like a daunting task. Doing it with only hand tools may seem down right nuts. However, as with any large case piece, the solution is to break the piece down into smaller, mini projects. By approaching the build as several, smaller, independent components rather than one large piece, the task becomes much more manageable. So instead of building one large entertainment center, I’m building 6 smaller cabinets, a base, and a crown. When looked at in this way, the job doesn’t seem so big. I’m starting with the base.
