Hello folks..it’s been a while since my last post. Although I haven’t posted all my projects I thought it was time to get one in. This little guy is a small component cabinet I made for a friend who is moving into her first new house and needed a cabinet to put her PVR, receiver, DVD player etc., so I put together this little guy as a house warming gift. Room was at a premium so the cabinet was designed to hold the essential electronics and act as an end table.
It is made mostly from white oak with the raised panel sides being ash. Decided to use glass shelving to save as much space inside cabinet as possible. Venting was installed in the cabinet floor as well as at the top of the removable back. Cable access is through installed grommets in the back. She loves dark colours so it was stained with a water based “Espresso” coloured stain from General Finishes. Two coats of a wipe-on poly, and topped off with a hand rubbed wax.
It was all made with scrap pieces of wood I had in the shop, the only expense was the glass and hardware. I hope it will suit her needs (at least in the short term), and when the day comes to upgrade to a larger entertainment centre, this little guy can be used as an storage cabinet for books or whatever.
