Nice stuff. I especially like the 'marbalized' grain on the drawers

I noticed you used the dovetail jig that only goes 50% of the depth. I have a similar jig that will do that, or go to 100% depth on the pins - have you ever had an issue with strength? I always prefer the full depth pins on my dovetails, but it is a lot easier to do the one's that are only half way in.

It is basically cabinet grade birch plywood. The face frames, door, and drawer fronts are solid birch. The drawer sides and backs are poplar. As for the finish, I had taken a sample of an existing cabinet the customer had and had Sherwin Williams do a color match. It has a cinnamon base. I can look for the formula if you are interested.

Thanks for the comment Kirk. I really like the look of dovetails. I could have done it a lot quicker with locking miters or just butt joints, but what fun would that have been (Ha-Ha). They are a challenge, but in the end, it makes the project much better.

I designed it along with the customer. He had his basement remodeled and left the opening in the wall for the built-in. We took into cosideration the size of the TV he was getting, what components and storage. Drew up a couple ideas and went from there.
