Default Pine TV cabinet

Today I started work on a TV cabinet. It will be a simple affair with panelled sides a cupboard for DVD's at the bottom with a shelf for a DVD player and a TV will sit on the top. I started by cutting the framework timber to size
After measuring for the Mortices they were cut on the bench morticer.
Tennons were cut on the table saw with my jig. They were then trimmed using the RAS. After three hours it was time for the first dry fit of the frame:
Hoping to finish the frame tomorrow and start work on the panels.

Well it must be a big TV.
You could park your truck on it. I like it.

I bought a store model & it's sagging in the middle. (on the "brand new to be modified" "to do" list)

Looking good, keep us up to date with the progress.

Mailee, you sure don't waste time, coming along fine, but the size of the legs! Never in my life have I seen an entertainment cabinet that would be safe to hide under as a bomb shelter!

Feeling a little better today After catching a flu bug that has been doing the rounds I ventured into the workshop again. I did some sanding and managed to get the front frame in glue up
I then set about cutting and preparing the panels that will fit into the frame work. Then these were left in the clamps for the morning.

I got the panels finished today and tried everything together for a dry fit. With the panels in place the legs still looked too 'chunky' for me so I ran a stopped cove detail around the panels, I think it improves the look and makes the legs look a little lighter, what do you guys think?

HI mailee

Looking Good

It's funny how pictures can be so deceiving at 1st. I tough like many I'm sure you are making a tank of a case just for a TV but now that's it's on top of your table saw it looks just right ..

Can't wait to see you get it done

Was just ribbing about how strong. Strong is good. Now that the panels are on its looking like a nice piece of furniture.

I was back on the TV cabinet today and finally got it glued together. I have almost finished varnishing it and am now working on the doors. I still have to add the shelves which I hope to do tomorrow.
