Finally finish up with a corner shelf for the bedroom TV, I was asked a little over 3 years ago to build one. Told her I needed to have a shop first, but she is happy now.

3/4” plywood for top and sides, 1/4 for bottom and built up trim to closely match the furniture trim. Measures 27” against the wall and 39” across the corners, 4 1/2” height. Had to paint it to match the furniture also. I will use a french cleat to mount.

Thanks for viewing

Thanks Woodbutcher. I might have to do a little rewiring in the bedroom though. Install a outlet and a cable jack. not sure yet, but I think I do not want to see the wires running up the wall.

Thanks James,

Yes first big project, was needed in the house. And yes to the 22.5 deg. I also did a quick turning project.

Current goal for a bit is to do a project a week, but due to nice weather here the past weekend, it was yard work, getting all the beds cleaned up, and thatching the grass. Back at though.
