no previous part Part 1 of TV 3 piece wall entertainment unit series Part 2: crown »

Clients drawing very similar to this one. Except no shelf above tv, doors on bottom of tall cabinets. He supplied 100 bd ft of 4/4 ash cut from his bush. Big item to build in my over crowded hobby shop!

I’m making the cabinets from 3/4” poplar core oak veneer I got at HD. Had them slice them up to make it easier to handle in my small shop. Set up the Laguna scoring saw and cut the dadoes.

Assembled the cabinets, made up face frames using pocket screws, then biscuits to hold to the cabinet

I made up crown that will be attached to the top of the cabinets and bridge.

ripping waste off at 45 degrees

made extras !

Got the top edge made, glued to one cabinet. Cut and test fit the crown.
