OK.. this is where I have been hiding for the last 3 weeks.. I finally received a commision to build a tv lift cabinet and tried veneering for the very first time ever.. I have been encouraged to give veneering a try to expand my abilities, so I thought I would..
I have taken pictures of each step of the way on this and am on the part of making and installing the curved moldings to take the radiuses of the cabinet.. I will say that this job has been a true pleasure to build and has tried my woodworking skills in ways I never imagined, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything
This cabinet is made of quarter sawn cherry, figured cherry, and walnut. I wanted to use maple instead of walnut but the client doesn’t like blonde woods so I went with walnut.. I got this idea from another lumberjock who built one out of crotch mahogany but the veneer was extremely cost prohibitive, so I used the cherry to match their furniture in the room that it’s going in. the small gap in the base in the front is not secured and is removeable to allow for the satelite box to be hidden behind the baseboard, that way the satelite box doesn’t have to be somewhere else and will work via an infrared eye. The gaps between the veneers gets covered with curved moldings that I am making now. I will post more pictures as soon as I finish it.. Finished!! here’s pictures of the final product..
