Another problem solved. This is a tidy little A/V Cabinet that that solves several of my life’s little problems like the remote not working and cables everywhere.

The cabinet is made of Cypress (hopefully I will use the last of it some day) it actually started out as a chest then I had one of those (bright) ideas I so often get… As a result it is constructed with decorative through dovetails. My favorite part of the cabinet is the wooden cleat that I constructed and attached to the bottom. It is intended to capture contain the power cords from just being everywhere. Cords go down the back around the cleat and finally through the center hole to the power strip that conveniently fits behind the cleat.

Thanks for looking and comments appreciated.

Good design!The shape of the cupboard door is very much like Chinese taiji diagram.

Beautiful cabinet, love the doors…...
What kind of hinges are you using?

Awesome. The doors are very nice.

Hinges Are actually not hinges at all but are peg shelf brackets like the ones used on the shelf. I wanted something very low profile and found these and said why not, The one’s I used had a hole in the tongue that I used a #8 1/2 inch screw and a drop of CA glue in the hole and have not had any issues.. I would not recommend this for large doors but for small ones they work great.

Love the curved lines on the doors- a relief from the usual straight lines! Thanks for sharing.
