Topic tags/keywords: question tip bubinga joining

First time caller, long time listener….

A friend of mine has asked me to build him a custom TV stand, but there are some design elements I am not able to figure out. The two things he is most concerned with is the shape/size and it being solid wood (4/4 Bubinga), and doesn’t want anything modern looking. I have attached a basic concept of the piece he is looking for; the stand fits in a specific space in his living room and the TV is on top (top is not shown in picture). I can provide more pictures including dimensions and such or if I can figure out how the entire .skp.

My concerns are the top and bottom construction (grain direction, frame and panel/edge gluing, end grain along the diagonal front… etc) and the joiney attaching them; whether to make each vertical section frame and panel or just solid panels and the grain direction if using solid panels.

So you if any of you have any advice or ideas (however radical) I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Are you saying 100% hardwood and no sheet goods anywhere?

How will this piece sit in relationship to a wall? From the drawing, it looks like the front will have either two doors or two panels and open shelves, on the left side a small open bookshelf and will that be another open bookshelf looking towards the back with a solid panel on the right?

Any particular reason for all solid Bubinga?
