I am about to take on a very big Project! It’s not going to be the easiest because it defies standard construction logic.
The project: Entertainment Center for the front room. Need to replace this mess:
With something that looks better than my sketch:
So what’s the big deal? If you viewed my shop you will recognize the problem. We live in a dome! All the walls are curved around and up! Notice my side view in the above drawing. The back side is curved.
Don’t believe it? Here is a photo from then side:
Notice the wall follows the curved back of the television! Hey the TV fits real nicely against the curved wall so that’s great but nothing is flat or square. Do you see my challenge now? The walls are solid concrete and where hand toweled so they are relatively smooth except for the stucco finish. Anyplace the cabinet will join the wall will have to be a custom cut.
My thoughts are to build a rectangular frame as illustrated here in the overhead drawing:
Within this frame I would build 4 sections. Left and right would probably be for speakers and the two center areas would be drawers behind cabinet doors. Looking roughly like this:
This would be the base unit with the left and right tops setting on top of it along with the TV. I thought that I would build a face frame and hang the fronts and doors off it. Then the sides would basically be hung onto the sides.
Obviously it would be a permanent fixture because of the inconsistence of the wall surface moving it even an inch or so would mess up the side to wall junctions.
Anyone ever face this challenge? Got any advice or is my view of this project off a bit? Obviously I can use all the suggestions anyone has.
