Custom Entertainment Center for Aquarium – Jacksonville Florida

For this Borders Woodworks project, we designed, built and installed a custom entertainment center and a custom bedroom suite for the home of our Jacksonville, Florida client.

Custom entertainment center to showcase aquarium - full front view

The custom entertainment center has a central open area for the client’s aquarium. The entertainment center also features two flanking book cases, all over a cabinet base that provides plenty of enclosed storage.

An additional consideration for the design of this entertainment center was that the cabinet base would have to support the additional weight of the large, filled aquarium.

The custom entertainment center features a number of interesting details:

– – cut corner detail on the base units eases the cabinets’ transition into the living space

– – decorative side panels and beadboard backs on the bookcases

– – wooden raised panel cabinet doors in side cabinets

– – reeded glass was used in the center section to allow remote control transmission to devices

– – custom crown molding around the tops of the two book shelf sections

– – wooden aquarium cover and bottom trim finished in black lacquer (The cover has a lift out lid to access the tank.)

This custom entertainment center was constructed of solid poplar and maple, and finished in a durable powder blue lacquer.
