    Hey guys,
    I promised Joshremy that I'd post up a couple three/five photos of my recycling project.
    So everyone would have a chance to point and laugh.
    I now have a whole new appreciation for the carpentry arts and talents.

    It was an 18 or 20 year old entertainment center.

    Now it's "GranDaddy's" entertainment center in his "Smokin' Hole"
    .
    Before: (Shelves removed and partially disassembled)

    During: (Center piece looks crooked, but is an optical illusion)

    After: (Satellite, Stereo, TV, Shelf for Box Set DVDs, Bar Light, several Old School Video Games e.g. Gallaga, Poll Position, Pac Man..., Liquor Cabinet, Small door also serves as mixing surface [not finished], and Wine Rack) Bunch of books and pictures just to fill it up for now. (and it is now on wheels.... cause it's damn heavy.) All wiring is internal and only one power-strip cord out, on back.


    And... Yes, it has a hat rack for my Stetson... upper left.

    Nice! I especially like the Johnnie Walker and MaCallen. I need to make myself a liquor cabinet instead of storing all my bottles on top of my guitar amps.

    Wow...awesome! Great job Lawrence. But if that piece is not crooked, that's one heck of an illusion (j/k).

    That piece has a triangle cut from the top front corner; from, the shelf to the door.

    Especially like the way you cut out the side of the monitor slot for proper side viewing

    I'm embarrassed...

    I used the last to sweeten my pipes about two weeks ago...
    Unfortunately it doesn't have the "time to buy more when the label's straight" label like Johnny Walker has.

    Nice work, as one who is surrounded by cabinets of "chic stuff" this one screams man.

    Thanks guys, I'm intending to find out just how truly functional it is this weekend.

    as one who is surrounded by cabinets of "chic stuff" this one screams man.

    I feel your pain... Until we got our first ferret (Scooter RIP) years ago I was and have been surround and inundated by "chic stuff" and females in general (God love'em)... Thus... my "Smokin' Hole" aka "The Dog House".

    I like organization and you've nailed it there.

    That's the capricorn in me.
    Here's the logo on my keg.

    Ooooooooohhhhh... Very nice!

    As is the rest of the recycling project - I wish I had more space to do such things with our old furniture, but we've wound up selling/giving it away to make way for upgrades. It still gets recycled, but it's not nearly as much fun.

    That is awesome! I like the hidden bar, and how its customized to fit the room. The cut out on the left and the overall proportions look great... and of course the rack for the stetson. A man needs a place to hang his hat!
    And to top it off, its a custom piece of work you cant find anywhere else!

    My Dog House, is where I do all this kind of stuff. Therefore it's always in a state of disarray. Basically off limits to the women folk.

    The cut out on the left and the overall proportions look great...

    Thanks Joshua, The TV that resides in said cut out is at the perfect viewing height and angle for my Lazy Boy.
