We decided to get rid of the 11 year old projection TV that was taking up so much space in our family room, and replace it with something a little more contemporary.
We just needed a new piece of furniture to put it on, and it needed to match the coffee table, end tables, and lamps I built a few years ago.
This cabinet is actually based (loosely) on plans for a small outdoor table from Woodsmith (issue No. 136). The joinery (except for the frame & panel doors) was done mostly with pocket screws.
I used about $50 worth of kiln-dried Western Red Cedar for the cabinet, and plywood scraps I had stashed in the garden shed for the back and shelves. I gave everything a coat of shellac, scuff-sanded, and shot it with 3 coats of water-borne lacquer. Total cost to build and finish, including hardware, was around $100.00.
