While it’s still a bit too cold to be in the shop I decided to spend some time drawing up some plans. Recently I bought one of those fancy new LCD TVs with internet everything in it. Now I need a bigger piece of furniture to put it on. Here’s a couple of shots of the SketchUp drafts I’ve started. Big TV on top, equipment in the center, lower outside corner space for my wife’s vinyl records. Drawers upper corners for DVDs, CDs, all that old stuff.
Most of the wood in my living room is red oak so I am thinking of making this out of red oak ply with a solid wood face frame. Okay, not fine furniture but it will work in the space. More importantly I’ve got a chance of actually making something like this in a weekend.
I still need to bit of refinement on the details. So far I am happy to report that the plan has received preliminary approval from my wife.
Here’s a couple of quick shots of the plan so far.
