I was commissioned to build a “built in” entertainment center but it was under a tight budget. So this project is a paint grade unit, with white melamine base cabinets. This is day 1 on the build. I am blogging this because I am doing this job a little different then I normally would, and I don’t have anything else to do. LOL. Sorry if it takes up to much of your time.
This morning I went to the shop I work at and cut all the material, bored for shelf holes, etc. Then took it back to my garage. This is a job through my business, so my boss doesn’t want it in his shop. Anyhow, here is the material cut and ready for assembly.
The materials used are:
White Melamine, maple plywood, poplar hardwood, and mdf bead board.
So far it is going fairly quick. these are frameless cabinets. I added a 1 1/2” top rail in poplar because I am making a countertop with a 1 1/2” hardwood edge that overhangs the cabinet. So it will overhang the front 3/4”. I am also going to put a hardwood edgeing on the shelfs and route a detail. I should be able to get the cabinetry and shelves done tomorrow, and hopfully start the doors. 2 doors will have white speaker fabric. The center doors will have bead board. Its a fairly simple project that hopefully goes well. I’ll give updates as I go. Because this is a low budget build, everything is butt joint, glue and screws. I am using roo glue for the melamine, and yellow glue for the plywood. Get-r-done tater salad.
As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.
