design with the round corner (the one in back) - although I might opt
for 3/8" or 1/2" oak-faced plywood for the interior of the media
compartment instead of 3/4" boards to reduce weight.
The choice of raised panels /vs/
flutes should be your choice to match
the decor of your home. I think your raised panels look good; but I
also like the art deco look that you could achieve with decorative
