This is the TV Cabinet I built. It’s made of Oak ply. and solid oak faceframe. Took me a while to build. Its one of the first projects I did for our new house. Flat Screen TV is 47” but built it large enough so maybe one day a 60” tv. Pleanty of shelf space. Doors on left side cover the 3 large drawers. They are used to hold our movies and videos game CD’s. Still need to put the stain on it, But my family was so excited they said no no lets us use it as is. So one day. I can empty it and finally finish it. Let me know how good or bad it looks. I value everyone’s opinion.

nice work.

i’m interested about those doors – they’re on in one pic, off in the next. are they completely removable? on hinges? what gives? ;-) also, are they frame + raised panel, or just plane front – tough to tell from the pics.

The doors,, that picture made with no doors. Was taken 2 days before the doors were finished and hung. They are not made to be removable. Just a normal hinge holds them in place. As to how they are constructed. At the time I didnt have the proper equipent to make raised panel doors. So the main panel is oak ply. Then i used a 3/4×2 solid oak for the outside frame. Cut a rabbit in that stock of 1/2” x 1-1/2. To give me a L shape stock. That L helps cover the edge of oak ply. Gives a look as if raised panel. Its a nice cabinet to have. Going to build more cabinets around the house.

cool, thanks for answering my questions! i like that – the arched trim does give an impression of raised paneling.

speaking of, how did you do the arches – bandsaw? saber saw?

Thank you for the questions, The arches on both the doors and shelves area. I laid them out and cut them with my Rigid 14” bandsaw. Then took all the door frame parts to my router table, Put a 1/8” raduis on the inside and a 3/8” radius of the outside frame. Then miter 45 degrees and glued them to the oak ply door panels. Tonight I am going to take pics of the bathroom cabinet I made. They are simular but I did not put the radius on the door frames. So you can see the difference, But they still look like a raised panel door. My wife and kids love that look. Thank you for you interest in my project.
