Project Information

This is a wall unit completed on December 21, 2007. It is part of a complete bedroom set that I built for this customer consisting of this wall, a bed, and two end tables. I will write about the rest at a later date.

Features
46" flat panel television and accessories in center section
Television pulls out and swivels.
4 Hanging compartments for clothes. (one has a tie rack)
18 drawers (plus 2 hidden) all with full extension rails
20 solid raised panel doors with 170 degree cancelled hinges.
Wainscot panel style end panel
Built as a built-in with a corner block to transition from our crown to their crown.
All insides are natural maple with the outsides dyed, stained, and lacquer. (see middle picture above)
Television compartment is painted black.

This was a very large project for me, especially around Christmas time. I divided these units into 5 section and then each of the sections were built as a lower drawer section and then an upper doors section. Because I used full overlay hinges on the sections, it made everything look seamless. Also to make it look like one piece I added the left wainscot panel with the left style attached after everything else was in place. Another way I tried to make it look like one piece was I seamed the crown and base together as one piece before I applied the finish to them. I left them long and fit them on site.

I made a bed and end tables about a week later to match, so keep watching for later post. I do have the other pictures archived on our web site at www.wwbeds.com

Mot,
There is a gap around the TV and a lot of air space behind it. The TV will only be on with the doors open.

Chris,

That is a stunning piece. I love the contrast between the inside and outside of the unit.

Wow Chris, very impressive. Love the way everything looks like one big unit, and the entertainment center in the middle is great. Excellent work.

Daddo,
My shop cam is designed to replay the last recorded segment that I have when I'm not there. So what you saw was pre-recorded. If you notice in the right corner it will usually say "pre-recorded" or "live". If I was there at midnite, my wife would kill me.
