Hi fellow LJs, It’s been a long time since I last posted, but I have wanted to let my buddies know I’m still pecking away at woodworking. Part of my lack of posting is my frustration with loading photos onto the site. There is a 5 meg limit to the photo resolution for the site. I have a pretty nice Nikon camera that I like but the images size runs around 6+ megs so the site won’t take them and I just don’t know how to reduce them. I took these photos with my phone but the quality is just not the same. Oh well, I do apologize for the image quality. I need a lesson in reducing image resolution so I can post easier. I have several other projects I’d love to get out here to share with my buddies.
This project has been in the works for awhile. With the changes occurring in the media realm and getting a wall mounted flat screen TV, I didn’t want all that stuff in a cabinet under the TV so I planned the wiring to make a media center later. I planned it as a desk and wall mounted cabinet, so the wiring came into the back of the desk and cabinet. I planned sort of a garage sort of thing at the back of the desk and sloped the front about 5 degrees so when the doors were flipped up they would stay. Behind these doors hides a charging station and a place to stash desktop supplies like paperclips, tape, etc. to keep the desk neat when not in use. I hope my friend Paul Miller sees the inlay work my wife and I did on the door panels. We were very please with how it came out.
There are 3 drawers in the desk to stash things. I had planned to build a 2 drawer mobile cabinet to go below the desk for filing, but we nixed that idea. The left side of the upper cabinet holds the satellite tv equipment and attaching a computer allows us to access the internet here and use the tv as a display and to show personal videos and slide shows of family and vacation photos.
I milled all of this out of native Cherry, turned the leg for the desk. The top is laminated plastic edged with a Cherry.
