    A mate for the TV cabinet - Finished Pics!

    I started working today on the mate to the TV cabinet that I built a few weeks back. This cabinet will sit on a different wall in the same room. It has gone through many changes since the original plan, but I hit on one that Jan likes so I'm going to run with it. I glued up the legs today. A sandwich of QSWO with a FSWO core, then thin QSWO veneer on the sides so the legs display QSWO face grain on all four sides. I learned early on that you don't mill the veneer down to less than 1/8" right away. It was much easier to resaw to 1/4", glue everything up, and then use a combination of the planer and drum sander to bring everything to size. Gotta brag here a little - I must be getting the hang of this woodworking stuff because this is the first set of legs I've done that are dead on square. Here's the plan drawing. I'll post some pictures of the legs soon. Click image for larger version.

    The drawing looks good, Rennie.

    Four small drawers, or two larger ones with faux fronts?

    Rennie taking a look at the past cabinet with equipment in it makes me stand in awe of your work. That unit came out really well and shows really well. This is my favorite finish and wood. To see the QSO and the ray and the color you got bang on for my taste. I hope someday i can make something like that. I have no doubt the table will be just as good. Looking forward to the build.
    cheers

    That's going to be a great addition. Love the family resemblance. Will the knobs match the media cabinet or be as in the drawing. Pulls are something I often put in diagrams for representation but, don't really design until last. I don't know if this is a personal idiosyncrasy, a latent design inspiration or just a fear to commit(?).

    They will match the TV cab = Jan likes them round. Could not convince her otherwise.

    Productive day.

    I was able to glue up and sand the top flat (I love my drum sander), mill and cut to size all the rails and stiles, and mortice all the legs (except for the through mortice that supports the shelf). If things go well tomorrow I'll get all the tenons cut, resaw the panels for the ends, and dry fit most of the cabinet.
