This is a console I envisioned that housed a record player. The design is a hybrid of many styles that I have collected along my carpentry path. Now it holds my sons Xbox so I can keep a clean surface. The front slides and is covered in tweed. One sliding side has a hole cut to allow the remote signal to change the channel.
I am a student of Japanese woodworking and did my best to use as much of the style as possible. So no nails and a small amount of glue to brace the top.
I purchased a new Gyokucho ryoba for the job and used it on about 80% of the cuts. I am very pleased with the performance of the tool.

The second photo is the first design idea, I taped the pieces on and let it sit in front of me until I came up with a different idea.

Very nice. My better half is constantly asking me to replace the plastic laminated cart we have our 47in on. Thanks for the style idea. Very interesting.

Whats up coach!? Looks good. I really like the contrasting wood tones.
