This cherry cabinet with a T.V. lift mechanism was contracted and built to suit measurements given. The doors had book matched panels. The lift mechanism was very quiet and neat to watch. Finished with an oil/varnish. The inside had space for electronics and movie with adjustable shelving.

Thanks for taking a look.

Very Nice Brian. One of those remote control lifts is an idea I’ve put into the wife’s head. I’m thinking I give her maybe a year and a couple more mentions about it, she might go for one. Decision making is not her strong suit.

Very very nice job, Had never heard of one, but I see now how the thin TV’s we have now would fit right in the back of the cabinet.

Very nice. My wife wants one and I am considering the build for the spring. What lift did you use? Would you recommend it? Easy to install? What is the overall depth of the cabinet?

I believe the over all depth of the cabinet was about 26”, but I could be wrong. I knew I should have bought one a few weeks ago, I received a huge discount coupon, but I couldn’t think what to do with it. I didn’t have any plans to build another lift cabinet anytime soon, but I would like to. It was a very fun build. Depending on when you are thinking about building it, I could maybe work up some basic sketchup plans for it. I bought the lift from Touchstone, they seemed to have the best prices when I was searching for them. I got the least expensive model, but it was still very nice and worked very quietly and smoothly.

If I remember right it came with some fairly decent measurements to use for installation and I build the cabinet around those, the tricky part was the height. The mechanism comes with arms that can be bolted in at different heights and you have to play around with it a bit to get it just right.
Let me know how it goes.
