I made this because I had an old wardrobe made from Chipboard and I wanted to re-purpose it so as that I would have somewhere to put some things like my little stereo and some files that were collecting so this is what I came up with, I also wanted a little writing platform somewhere to put plans as I am working on something and there is no danger of spilling glue, coffee, water….....the list is endless.

I used pocket joinery to connect the shelf supports and the bottom tresses to stabilize the unit.I know I keep using pocket screws but I love using my jig, its easy and effective and cheap (that’s after you buy the jig $40)

The beautiful thing about this project is that it didn’t cost me anything…

I hope you like it….

You did a great job, plus you’ve sparked a memory from my childhood. Back in the days when TV’s had CRTs, maybe even be made of wood and were the size of a small dresser, handymen in search of cabinets to store their stuff in would take the electronics out of the sets, face the back outwards and use them as cabinets. My dad, a one-time TV repairman wanna be had several in our basement.
