Recently made a TV cabinet built around the 32cm LCD TV. I chose old recovered Oragon Pine which took forever to remove all nails etc and thickness. The lower portion houses 150 bottles of red wine, draws are sized for DVD,s and CD,s

Great looking cabinet. Did you plug the nail holes or are they visible close up. How far from the floor is the TV shelf? How many CD/DVDs can it hold? Is this too many questions? ;2)

Excellent recycling job!

What happens if you want a larger TV later? :-)

Was worth the effort to reclaim the wood, it is beautiful. Great project, looks and works fantastic.

Hi Jim,
Only plugged the really bad ones, prefer to leave most as they are with blackened edges it gives a bit more charachter to the unit. The TV stands 25.25in or 66mm off the ground, one draw holdes 48 DVD,s another 100 CD,s. The long opening on the LHS has three shelves with a mirror at the back and holds all the glases + open bottles in use. The wide cabinet above the TV holds various unopened bottles of spirits.

I know I should not be posting any of this information as it would appear that I am an alcoholic, in reality I only enjoy the red wine and have a glass or two most evenings.

Charlie, I seldom watch the TV what with all the action in the workshop. We only have a small lounge anything bigger would not be necessary. The unit is attached and built in, so if and when we ever move it will remain behind.

Regards Kneal

Trust me an alcoholic rarely just leaves 150 bottles of wine laying around…they might rot or dry out. The color on the pine is nice and rich. looks good.

Very nice rich looking wood, I love all the knots, very rustic looking.

Have your say...
