I’ve promised the wife a new TV stand/cabinet ever since we purchased our new HD TV over a year ago. Currently, we’re using one of my coffee tables. Just as I was about to embark on something else, I was told this project was next!
I have had a concept in mind for the cabinet, ever since I completed my curved panel clock, shown here:
I liked the look of the curved panel, so I wanted to incorporate it into the design of this TV cabinet, which is to be a stand, plus shelving underneath for the DVR, VCR, etc. Here’s what I came up with in SketchUp:
She liked it; truth be told, it’s one of my best designs. I like the curved panel sides, and what I did with the arching in the doors, as well as the blackwood inlay in the lower front. All cherry.
It’s about 4’ long, 22” high, and 1 1/2’ deep, a decent size, and will accommodate my gear nicely.
Side note: The rendering was done outside of SketchUp – you can see the name of the renderer. You can get a trial version for 30 days. This was about 20 hours of rendering; at it’s max, it will render a photo-realistic rendering!
NEXT UP: Making a detailed drawing.
-- Have a blessed day!
