This was a complicated design. The client really knew what he wanted and what that was, was a lot LOL. Getting everything he wanted crammed into the space was the biggest trick of all. The TV, stereo, DVD player, CD/DVD holders, PC, bass speakers, etc. etc. all had to fit. I did good for the most part until install day when i got it there and the full extension drawers wouldn’t open up on the bottom boxes. After installing the rest i spent the next couple days finding new hardware so i wouldn’t have to redo the 3 boxes. Oh well thats how it goes, they say you are only a good woodworker if you can do a good job at hiding your mistakes hee hee.
Anyway Raised panel hickory cabinets. Pull out and swivel TV, fixed glass shelves, pull out shelves for electronics, full extension pull out drawers for CD/DVDs, pull out tray for PC box to sit on, speaker fabric covered for bass speaker, lites recessed in the top compartments are wired into the base of the swivel under the TV with the touch activated dimmer.
I really dig hickory but i don’t think i’ll do another big project with it again too many broken bits, to many blade sharpening bills LOL.
The finish is my adapted french polish, basically 3-5 coats of brush on 1lb cut shellac, then 2-4 coats of wipe on poly. Its easy and fool proof.
Hope you all like, have a great day….............Dug
