My daughter needed a cabinet for her new TV, but it needed to fit in the corner of the room, so I came up with a six-sided design.

It is built of Red Oak, 41” wide, 20” deep, and 24 1/2” high. The two drawer boxes are 1/2” hard maple with machine cut dovetails and full extension slides.

Due to the shape of the carcase, I had room in the back to tuck a power strip/surge suppressor so all of the cords and cables are concealed inside the cabinet.

The finish is 2 coats of Danish Oil, followed by 5 coats of satin poly.

Gerry that turned out beautiful. I like the idea that you hid the cords inside the cabinet instead of just on the back. Your dovetails and frame and panels look great!

Drew—Thanks! The oak frame is mortise & tenon, but I cheated a bit on the joints. I put a 1/8” 45-degree chamfer all the way around the show surfaces … adds a nice little detail and hides any slop that creeps into the joints.

Very, very attractive cabinet. The design is really nice, the wood looks great and the details also very nice. Your daughter should be very pleased.

Very creative thinking in the design. Looks great. I’m sure your daughter will treasure it for a long time. Maybe pass it down.
