This is the entertainment armoire that I build to match all the other items for RSG. It was placed directly opposite the Murphy bed in the room and had a corner desk connected to it also. In this one room I had the armoire, the Murphy bed and two desk.

For the TV section I used pocket doors from KV. To hide the doors when open, I put a patrician in that was attached with biscuits at the top and screws form underneath. I attached it this way so the pocket door hardware could be installed and adjusted after the finish. The patrician also allowed me to put adjustable shelves for a DVD/VCR or other components. There were other ways to get a shelf in there with the pocket doors, but that would have limited it to a fixed shelf.

All the doors and drawer fronts in this piece are raised panel 5 piece frame and panel style to match the other items.

HI Chris;

Once again a fine project. It’s unfortunate that you’re force to work in such a tiny space. lol

Looking good.

Your right about that. I need more equipment and I’m going to IWF Atlanta, but I don’t know where I’d put it. Thanks for the post Lee.

Wonderful job. I like the idea of being able to have adjustable shelves.
One thing I am wondering, you mentioned being able to adjust the pocket door hinges. Did you do all the adjustments prior to putting in the partitions?

Thanks for posting-

Kipster. since this had many other items like the bed and all the desk, I outsourced the doors. It took about about 6 hours to build, a couple hours to finish (if I divide it out), and a couple house to final assemble. I don’t keep a real good record of time.

Yes, I adjusted it before the particians went in. Usually something this big will pull out of square when it is delivered, so I thought I would have to pull them out and re-adjust. I got lucky and no adjustment was needed.
