This will be my first project of this type, and first use of sketchup. Any and all comments welcome.
design: Firstly, what do you all think of this design? It’s a derivative of a plywood entertainment center design I came across. It is a lot wider than the normal (90”), but sized to be sort of a built-in type piece in my basement for toy storage. TV will be on the wall above. there are two sets of cabinet doors on the sides, and 3 drawers in the middle. The drawers are somewhat tall but a stack of 4 looked odd to me. plus will hold more of of the kids stuff.
materials. Should i be concerned using a cabinet grade veneered ply on this? Given the span of the top piece, should i be concerned about warp? would MDF be a better alternative?
highly recommend sketchup. this took me about 3 hrs. i could now duplicate it in about an hr, but i assume a regular user could do this in about 30 minutes.
