I started by assembling 2 Besta floor cabinets and attached them together. I installed handles and door catches. Next I built a base to raise them off the ground and mounted the cabinets. I cut a piece of maple for the countertop and attached trim, stained and clear coated.
Then built best upper cabinets…they were too deep and didn’t look right with the TV so I disassembled and cut every piece down to 11 inches deep. Next I inserted the shelves and added baseboard and crown molding…Looks great!!
