This week I finished building a TV Cabinet for a client who was getting rid of a huge projection style TV to a slimline flat screen. In the picture attached you can see how massive this TV looks. To maintain the same height of the TV the customer wanted to add some kind of cabinet to store CD’s, DVD’s, etc.

This cabinet I made is 20” tall x 15” deep and 52” long. The existing shelf units you see in picture below will still be used. They will butt up against this new cabinet.

I used Red Oak plywood for the main body and used rough sawn red oak from my local saw mill for doors, drawer fronts, top and front face frame. As you can see the center area has drawers and adjustable shelf in the side compartments.

For the finish I used was Minwax Satin Poly. Three coats applied by using my HPLV Earlex Spray System. Spraying Poly is easy to apply.

This project was fully custom made. I designed using ‘SketchUp” I use this same program for all my project designs. This is a great design software. I highly recommend using. If anyone has interest, I would be glad to share with you my design plans. Just contact me at I have shown what the Sketchup drawing looks like in the picture portfolio.

Very nice design and cabinet. Those old TVs were crazy heavy and deep. Took two people to move them, now you can handle a 42” TV with one hand.

Can you post another picture of the top? I’m interested to see how the grains look.
