AV credenza

Hi everyone, I just finished a credenza to host all AV equipment below the TV and hide the gazillion cables.

The box is made of bubinga with variable space box joints I cut for the fist time on the CNC.

The doors are birds eye maple and carved on the CNC as well. The process was very smooth, I first struggle to create the CAM for this pattern in Fusion360 so if anyone is interested I can share the process.

The base I welded out of 304 stainless steel and since I cut the angles of the legs on my Tormach I ended up engraving a logo as well.

I used for the first time European hinges (by Blum) and highly recommend them – the setup couldn’t be easier and the ability to adjust after install is fantastic.

The finish is my usual 2 coats of shellac followed by 4 coats of water based poly with ample sanding in between coats.

Thanks for looking and have a great day

Well done. Excellent wood…rarely seen here in the US in that size.

Curious how you handle RF propagation to your equipment.

Good question, I use logitech universal remote, it comes with a IR hub and 2 small IR repeaters/blasters that goes in the cabinet and the small one on top talk to the TV – very neat

Stunning, that Bubinga plays a nice surround for that incredible Maple whose grain may be overwhelming in a smaller amount, is perfect here. Nice work.

I am a sucker for the mid-century modern look. Nicely done. A blog about your CNC process might be interesting and informative to see.

Yes, and sorry I didn’t include a picture of the back, my wife was too eager to see it installed.

I slotted the plywood back with 4 grooves per shelves (top and bottom) with a 1/2” router bit.

I haven’t yet checked the temperature to see if this is effective enough

With flat screen TVs the Cardenas is really the only way to go. A friend had me build a stereo cabinet for him because he was going to mount the tv on the wall. I could talk him into something more like this. To each his own. Great job though!

This is perfect for that spot. Love the wood in this. So the doors are just panels, what hinges and stops did you use.

I don’t know how I missed this wonderful piece (Blame the pandemic).
I’d love to see a close-up of your variable box joints if you get a chance!
The doors are absolutely beautiful…
