Bedroom wall unit

My wife decided to redo our bedroom last year and part of the remodel included new furniture. After looking for some pieces to add to the room we came up with nothing that was either the right style or the right price. Thus the suggestion, “Could you make something?” Now I’m not one to ever shy away from a project in wood that’s requested by my better half. #1 It keeps me busy and #2 It puts me in the shop. I looked at a couple things on line to get a rough idea after she told me want she would like to put in the room. After she approved, I drew up some pans and went to the room designer (again my wife of course) for approval. Both items were made from poplar and the majority of the build was done with a Kreg Pocket Hole Jig/screws. I’ve learned to really like this.

Her writing desk has 2 leaves to expand her area. The main wall unit will get granite tops from the local dealer’s junk pile of small pieces and then painted once the room is dry-walled over the existing TG cedar planks. So except for their getting painted the color she chooses, my building is complete.

Very nice and with Granite Tops? If you’re going to just cover up the Ceder with Drywall, why not just remove them and add them to your lumber pile?

I thought about that John but the cedar is over 20 years old and starting to get a little dried out. Leaving it on makes putting the drywall up easier and gives me a good backing for the TV mount. I’m getting too old for the demolition part too. LOL

Very nice looking. Its hard to find quality funiture when your shopping and then end up setting for something that wasn’t quite what you were looking for.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I’m probably not far behind you. In any case, the cabinet looks awesome.
