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.
