With Wren finished and another secret kayak in the planning stages, I am to finally start on the TV Console. I have talked about this for a year now I guess. Finally bought the new TV and had no place to put it. So we did it Redneck style, it sits on top of the old Console TV.
I picked up the Cherry from my now deceased neighbor, Chuck had given me before he passed on. It's been sitting in his barn. That wood is special to me so I have been saving it for something special for the house. He had about 125 to 150 Bd Ft. of Black Cherry/Choke Cherry laying around. I tried to talk him out of it but he had plans for it in building a shed or something. Latter on he decided to give it me, then shortly after that he discovered his illness. So I promised him it would be used for something special.
Like all of house it is very Arts and Crafts flavor. Going to be a lot of mortises on this one so I am getting the Mortiser I bought finished up and fine tuned. Expect to use it a lot on this project.
There are a few small details on this piece that won't show that much but will make the piece. Like the stiles in the door and end panel are slightly recessed. I want to do mortise and tennon frames, a first for me. So I am looking forward to this one. Should some what of a challenge. At the very least I am going to have to learn some new skills and tricks.
