Part 1: Frame and panel work

12-14-2020 05:02 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 1 comment »

I need to make a TV stand that also houses your usual TV related gear. I started with a simple layout: There are no shelves as I am going to put glass shelves in. I had a pile of locally sawed cherry that I have been sitting on for years. It was not enough for a kitchen or a dinning set, but it would work for this. I love local wood. Full of character, flaws that you can build on and a natural sense to the wood. It cleaned up nice: I milled out rail and stile blank...

Part 2: Dry Fit

The Book-match panels got one coat of seal-a-cell and then three coats of armor-seal. Dominoes were cut to join the legs to the panels.

Armor Seal after ceal-a-cell, with sanding after each coat. Shelves fitted. Top installed with figure 8 bolts. I had to go out and get shorter #8 wood screws as I thinned the top out a bit due to having to hand plane. Done. I will post in project when I get it installed. Though not one of my more complex pieces, of of my better as the weights and proportions really work (to me). The union of rough character rich cherry and glass creates an interesting vibe. It was great to find a ...
