TV Cabinet

This cabinet was made for a friend that just completed a studio apartment. They bought a kitchen contracting store and the former owner left a 12 ft oak raised panel, which I was able to make the basic case from. I purchased the plans online and adjusted the dimentions to fit the panel. The doors slide on tracks made on the router table. It’s stained with Minwax ‘Red Oak’ and finished with a semi gloss poly.

hey, that’s nice. Did you leave holes in the back for cords?

Nice job. Love the color. Would love to do something with sliding doors but can’t get my head around it without buying expensive hardware. How did you handle your doors. did you buy something for them to track on or is it a tennon at top and bottom to ride in a groove?

Thanks for the compliments. The dimensions are, 29”H X 20”D X 48”L. As for the door tracks, I cut a couple of extra-long blanks to width 2 3/8”, routed grooves (1/2” straight bit) in both pieces to hold the doors then cut to length. The upper track’s grooves are deeper (9/16” top – bottom 1/4”)) to allow you to install the doors simply by lifting them up and setting them into the lower track. I had to put the holes in after cabinet was set in place, didn’t know what types of components they had, which worked out better.
