Some TV furniture I’ve made over the years. As you can see they were quite some years ago, as they are all from the tube TV era.
The first one is a beautiful old RCA console which my father-in-law kept around for years after the TV died because he loved the walnut cabinet. So I gutted the TV, lined the inside with solid walnut panels, added an adjustable shelf, and a strip light inside the top to light his collection of geodes and rocks.
Second one is an antique french armoire converted to an Entertainment unit. Made a matching pine shelf unit for the components, and converted the doors to sliding pocket doors so they don’t block the view of the TV. The only modification to the original armoire itself is the 25mm pockets I drilled on the back of the doors for the slider hardware.
Third one is a stereo cabinet of solid oak built to match the oak console TV. the lower part is the center speaker for the surround sound system.
Fourth one is a simple riser with a drawer inside, to raise the TV for better viewing from the bed.
I got to visit my father-in-law this weekend and get picture of the last one. It’s a walnut cabinet for a 37” tube TV. My father-in-law made it, but I did get to help a little and work some with that beautiful walnut. The base of this one (the fifth picture) is the same drawer base from the fourth picture, just re-skinned with walnut.
