I need to get started on this item while I've got a bit of in-between time going on. The design elements are still in flux but, in general this approximately 44" wide by 29" tall cabinet will look something like this:
The doors will hide the components while the drawers will hold media. The eventual plan is to have a TV on the wall over it if I ever get bored enough to buy a TV. Until then it will hold the stereo that got displaced when I added a machine to the gym.
I had just finished a piece for someone out of cherry but, didn't think I had enough left for this piece of my own. I went digging and found more than I thought I had. Still, a trip to the lumber yard was in order. I think it was on this forum that I noticed someone breaking down lumber with their jigsaw as opposed to a circ-saw. I can't spare the room for a CMS or a RAS so I used to use a circ-saw. The jigsaw is quieter, cleaner (with the vac hooked up) and easier/quicker to get out and put away, I gotta tell ya. I have been doing this ever since I saw it done years ago. thanks, whoever you were .
There are three large panels in this piece; the top, an adjustable shelf and a lower fixed shelf (above the drawers). Although I power joint pieces for general milling operations I have fell into the habit of hand jointing parts for panel glue-ups. Have I mentioned that I am really happy to have a BU jointer plane? There's also some gratuitous glue-up pics .
I found a nice set of figure that I plan to incorporate into the corner posts.
I picked up the stock I'll need for a lot (if not all) of the framing parts so I will be milling those up next.
