This a TV wall and media stand that has floating shelves. It was built in January 2011. I’ve built headboard before where I support it with a groove in the back (see example )but never without the front supports. I had to do some experimenting. After several trials I had it down. The problem was getting a groove big enough that the glass can slide into, yet not sag and of course not fall out. What I did was to cut a slightly larger groove about 1/32” at a 7 degree angle. When placed in it binds itself and finishes out a 90 degrees. It was very stable. Even bumping it there is no risk of it coming out. Actually the heaver stuff you put on there the more fixed it is.
This was made for a very large TV. A 60” wide TV. The back panels were 96” wide and divided into 23 7/8” panels. The panels were connect using the Festool Dominio system (my new toy) and pocket screws. The drawer fronts, which the finish is too dark to appreciate, are in sequence so that the grain is continuous.
I’ve started a new thing to where I put a tag on the back of my furniture. This tag is signed by all that worked on it and has a QR tag that can be scanned with a smart phone. This take you to the customers page where all their pictures and video are kept. Click here or scan the QR tag.
