I am new to box and cabinet making, so I thought that I would ask the question to see if the more knowledgeable folks could tell me the best possible method.
A client has a TV cabinet that was purchased from Ikea. The current flat panel TV sits on top with no problems, except she would like to raise the TV height about the size of a dvd. So the thought was to build a small platform on top of the current tv stand and create a small opening in the front just big enough for dvd’s to stand up in. I am going to make this out of 3/4 plywood or MDF as it is just going to be painted white to match the current setup.
See attached sketch
I will be putting in a T shaped suport to be the backing for the DVDs as well as extra strength using dados.
What joint would you recommend?
