It’s time to get rid of our behemoth old entertainment center in favor of a smaller TV stand. In browsing fellow LJ projects I came across Looeyville’s effort here:
I really like it. And, I’ve heard that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I figure straight out copying must be even better. So, I think that’s what I’ll do. But, I’m not sure what kind of joinery I want to use. My first thought was to use my Kreg Jr. for nearly everything. Then, of course, I have to decide if I want to miter the corners or use a butt joint. I think the only difference would be in aesthetics. Anybody disagree?
However, my latest issue of Wood Magazine has just arrived and it contains a mirror build using mitered half lap joints. Very fancy! I don’t think I want to get this involved, but I’d consider regular half laps, I suppose.
BTW, I’ve bought some 1×4 select pine for this project. I may or may not stain it.
Anybody have any suggestions, comments, or criticisms? Thanks for looking.
