    Entertainment Console Plans

    Here is my first SketchUp project. I am wanting to build an entertainment console (not sure that is the right description for this) to go below a wall mounted flat screen TV. I've taken ideas from 3 different plans and combined aspects to come up with this:



    I'm putting the dimensions on a different layer, so that when it comes time build a given piece I can hide the rest of the drawing, view dimensions and verify I'm cutting to correct size. Heck of a lot easier than paper and pencil!

    If anyone wants to take a look at the actual skp file, let me know and I'll email you a copy (it's about 1.6 megs, so I couldn't attach to post). Still need to draw the actual drawer (for DVD storage) and add some final touches but so far has been fairly easy (read all of Dave's posts ), and a lot of fun using SketchUp.

    Looks good Brad. It looks like it should be fairly light; it floats. You might want to add a ring to it someplace so you can anchor it to keep it from floating away.

    I'd like to see your model. E-mail addy is available in my profile.

    Me too!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
