After shopping around and comparing prices I decided to build my own credenza. I came across this site http://x818.com/oss3/ Pete made this cool credenza with very little cutting, drilling or gluing. After doing the research on europly “the wood Pete used” I realized it would be too expensive. So I started looking for alternatives.

I came up with the idea of using two Ikea Lack shelves and making my own. Just my luck, we found one Lack shelve in the scratch and dent section and purchased another. I ordered a set of hairpin legs from http://www.ianmaclean.com for that little touch of retro. The silver track I picked up from the local HD. I love the way it turned out and all the remotes work through the Plexiglas. Total cost was around $275. Lots of pics after the jump.
