This is my latest project for my master examination.

A sideboard made of massive walnut and walnut veneered panels. The drawer slides were made of beechwood.
It is built to contain Hifi-components and carry a TV. Therefore is some space left between the bodies to hide cables. On the rear sides of the middle body are cable feed-throughs to have a clean look also to keep them at cool temperatures. It’s finished with 2K PUR semigloss coating.

It’s some kind of a back to the roots project with a well balanced construction, making it possible to built this in approximatly 80 hours. This one has passed because the calculation was right and everything works just perfect, the drawers are sliding like on rollers…

The slides are created just with a tablesaw, very simple to do. Accuracy and wood of good choice is very important for function. Maybe i gonna post a plan of them. The slides are also very compact, the clearance between the drawer and the side is about 1/4”

looks good. I like the horizontal grain on the front and the lack of hardware. Most of the time I dislike looking at hardware. For my taste I’d rather see something that looks clean. You nailed it on this. Those drawer slides are super cool! Thanks for sharing.

A beautiful piece in appearance, workmanship, and design!

Sort of reminds me of the home entertainment consoles of the ‘60s’ but definitely a quantum step of that vintage.
