Showcase cover image for Steve Casey's Low Console TV Cabinet

Project Information

Just finished (almost, need to finish inside of drawers) this entertainment cabinet from the design of Steve Casey from http://www.stevecaseydesign.com/unlinked/Published%20article.pdf. It was a fun project and pretty manageable since the case is assembled with screw and biscuts, but not glued. That also makes it easier to finish the pieces flat. Also easier when you don't have a workshop full of clamps. It sits on six two inch casters so it is easy to pull from the wall to plug stuff in. This is quater sawn white oak with my tied and true Norm Abrams finish of one coat Bullyeye Seal Coat and two coats general finishes satin poly applied with a foam pad. I then updated from a tube to a LCD and blu ray player with wifi capability. Just one problem . . . nothing good on tv. THanks for looking.

Just to clarify, I'm not Steve, he is the designer so I gave credit to him.

Very nice Steve,.... just kidding, looks very nice, I like the look. I have seen Steve Casey's work and love his entertainment centers, he has some really cool art pieces also. Nice job.

Some of his work, I love this.

Thinking about taking on this project. I've seen "no glue" in the article and in this post. Does that mean no glue in the biscuit joints as well?

Yep, no glue for the case work. You assemble it with biscuits and screws. Of course, there is glue in the hardwood edging of the individual pieces. It's a fun project.

Down to putting on the top. Not crazy about the shims for the top - seems like they were an afterthought? I'll hopefully be able to post my finished version soon :)
