I finished a very large entertainment center for a neighbor. I used my son-in-law to help me lift the beast.
The cabinet was made in four sections and bolted together. The center section used three sheets of oak ply. It weighed an awful lot. The unit was much to large for my spray booth so I assembled the unit out in the carport, stained and sprayed it there. I must have some dirt on the lens of the camera and that is why there is a round dot on the lower cabinet.
