Spent time thinking about what I want in an Entertainment Center. The Stickley designs are 63 in wide. Typical heights are 30 to 34 in. I drew up a plan showing what I think I want to do.
I like kick boards for the bottom better than the typical rounded Stickley design. Frankly, I am not much of a housekeeper and I end up with too much dirt/dust and am too lazy to want to keep it clean under the front.
Bottom 3 openings will be drawers. Top 6 will be shelves. I showed the shelves as dado joined but I think routing in metal slots so that I can move the shelves around would be better.
Problem is, I can dado the verticals for the area around the drawers, but what do I do about the other side? I can’t put two 3/8” dados on both sides of a 3/4” piece. Maybe just dado by 1/4”???
Here’s an improved version:
I think I can solve the dado problem by putting cleats along the top edge of the drawer. They will be hidden by the drawer anyway so that might work. That way I can put dados on the vertical. I think this will work:
