    TV wall unit a W.I.P.

    Fellow I made a stereo stand for a few years ago wants a wall unit for his rec room. From his sketch, this online one is close to what he wants. So far I picked up the oak veneer from HD , cut to approx size. Had this used TS for 5 years, 1st time trying the scoring blades on veneer. Took a lot of fiddling, but when set up with a zero clearance insert I made, got very nice clean cuts.

    Looks like it will be a nice sized project. How many pieces are you building it in?

    3 main pieces. The 2 end cabinets will have a door on the bottom in place of drawers and the centre section will have 4 drawers. The 2 shelfs over the tv won't be built.

    looks like your moving right along bryan,, that jig your using for the shelf holes where did you get that.. havnt seen one like that one which works on both sides at once.. do you have some kind of stop applied to your bit to prevent drilling through the ply sides..?

    Lee Valley sells them, bought this one 20 yrs ago, been using it for a long time. I bought the longer rods, use a 1/4" lipped drill bit to try and get cleaner holes. Handy jig!
    Yes, you need a stop collar too.
    change the currency for usa prices, I have it set on canadian dollars.

    Its funny, I noticed that jig also.
    Ive been using pegboard forever.
    But Alan and Karl introduced me to those 5mm screws to put in drawer slides, and I was thinking about ordering a jig for shelf pins and 5mm holes for slides.(I made a huge order from McFeelys the other day, enough screws and hinges to last me a long time, 15% off, 1 dollar shipping, cant beat it for the quality)
    Think Ill take a look over there and make an order.

    Brian, its always a pleasure to follow along on your builds. Thanx for sharing the steps, just want you to know some of us woodworkers look foward to guys like you , glenn,and alan posting up step by step builds, techniques, equipment used, etc.

    At least I got the 2 cabs glued up today, as I thought I might get to mill some of the clients Ash he cut from his bush . Had to do some trimming to get the parts to got together right. My back dado wasn't deep enough for the 3/16" thick panel.
