I was asked to create a TV cabinet to fit into a specific spot in the room. It would require a triangular design. As I was working with these odd angles, I could just imagine my geometry teacher from over 50 years ago looking down at me and saying, “I told you, you should have paid attention!”

The carcass was constructed with white oak veneer plywood (3/4”) and assembled using router-cut lapped miter joints. The balance of the cabinet is plain sawn white oak. Resawing a wide plank and then edge gluing the two halves created the book-matched door panel. Before sliding the panel in place I inserted Space Balls into the frame recess to account for wood movement. The top consists of five boards that were aligned using biscuits. It is held in place with two Kreg screws in the rear and three screws through elongated holes in mounting brackets to allow for wood movement.

Blum euro style hinges attach the door and FastCap euro doorstops keep the door aligned with the frame (both excellent products!). The Arts & Crafts door pull is from Liberty Hardware. And, the interior sports one adjustable shelf.

The cabinet was stained using Varathane, Gunstock color. The finish was sprayed using an HVLP. I applied three light coats of Varathane water borne gloss polyurethane, followed by one coat of satin.

Thanks for looking.

P.S. I should have listened Mr. Pearson!
