Second part of a commission including a dining table in the same style, modern corner cabinet for a TV with open storage underneath for dvd players and such. It is not a perfect triangle as they wanted it to face more to the left, which complicated the whole thing.
Made with solid french oak, some parts are veneered mdf, finished with 3 coats of mat water based polyurethane

I want to build a corner cabinet to hide my trashcan in the kitchen. This project is a good motivator for me. Great job on your work. I will refer back to this project when I start building the corner cabinet of my own.

the only, and the one and only reason to take a commission, is for one rule

$$$$

I assume, by the shape of the corner cabinet, that the TV will sit where ?

I c a “sag” factor coming to HD/TV/OWNER of said “commission” regardless of where the TV sits

just a teeny weeny sag, and those wide doors, will rub something

jus sayn cheers : )

put a bearing wall right up the middle of that cabinet span, the big ass thin spot (without a bearing wall) that the TV sits above and on…………….needs internal support, even if the TV doesn’t sit on it and is suspended above…

and do me a favour

dont &^%$ up again lol

Moron, it’s for a modern flat screen TV, not even a big one. If it were for an old heavy ass tube TV then i would have reinforced it. But in this case there is no way it can sag, the inside isn’t as deep as it looks. The base of the TV will rest above the rear cabinet wall.
And i took care of counter sagging the doors, the slightly “sag” upwards now. They have room to sag if they wanted to but i doubt it because they are very light and the hinges are over sized.

Nicely done. I contemplated a similar design before making my TV stand two years ago. Did the customer not want any finish on the piece?
