Hey guys, I’m looking to build this media console that my wife is dieing to have. I built a similar console a little while back, but the construction was a little less complicated and my methods were a bit more crude. I had built that one just using a circular saw, combination miter saw, and cordless drill. I’ve picked up quite a few tools since then and have learn quite a bit more too. Below are pics of the console that I want to build and of the one that I have already built.
So this leads me to ask, how should I go about building this console?
I’m planning to either glue up three 6” boards for the panels or use 3/4” plywood for most of the carcase like I did on the older one. Then I will add a 3/4” frame to face the front edges like you see on kitchen cabinets. Not sure if I need to double up on the top or not since it’s going to have framed edges on the front.
