So my wife didn’t like the look of my new 12” subwoofer for my home entertainment system. This end table was the solution.
I built it without a bottom so the table would not vibrate. The sub sits on the floor of the house. Louvered doors on front and back for sound to pass through and ventilation. (It really does not get very hot, ever.) False drawer fronts. Beaded face frames. The top slides open revealing a cavity that can hold a variety of things, mainly remotes for now. Soft close drawer slides keeps it from sliding open unintentionally and closes it very nicely.
I could even put a blu ray player or gaming console in it. I have an hdmi cable run from the end table to the tv through the walls. I will also be adding a power strip to the inside as well. The front and back look identical, as the back is exposed and I wanted it to look nice as well.
Built out of Birch. Dyed with Transtint medium brown. Wiped on Minwax colonial walnut stain. Was happy with the results so no toner. Sprayed on lacquer.
This was a fun project.
Thanks for looking!
