TV Cabinet

A little over a year ago, our old cabinet TV was dying, and it was time to get a flat panel. But we needed something to put the TV on and house the equipment. My wife had seen cabinet with an open door design, allowing the signal from the remote to go through, but you don’t have the glass look. I incorporated the door design with DVD storage.

Note – The door looks great, but it took me longer to stain than build.

5/4 quarter sawn white oak.
Lowes Cabot Early American stain
Varathane Diamond Wood Finish (water based)

Nice build! The cabinet and finish look excellent, but maybe you should look up RF (for remotes) repeaters for solving the door problem.

This is a gorgeous cabinet. I enjoy the look of this style of furniture and QSWO is such a beautiful wood. This cabinet has a nice design to it and the door does give it a unique look.

Thanks eveyone.

Mert

I put a tennon on each of the pieces and rounded each one. Then I drilled a hole for the tennon. I used a lap joint for the field. I made the groves in wide boards then cut them into pieces.
