Recently a co-worker asked if i could design and make a TV cabinet for in in-laws who were replacing an outdated projector style TV to a modern streamlined big screen TV. I designed this in Sketchup. basing the size of location of current TV and to fit into the scheme of their living room. This cabinet is made of Red Oak plywood and Rough sawn Red Oak. I used the rough sawn for the doors, drawer fronts, front frame and top. The drawer slides are soft close. The shelves on both sides are adjustable up and down. For the finish I used Minwax Satin Polyurethane. Overall size is 15" deep x 20" tall x 52" long. Free Sketchup plans may be downloaded from this site: http://tompritch1.wix.com/bumpaswoodcreations
My wife originally asked for a Full-length mirror, but I also wanted to build her a jewelry box, so I decided to combine the two. Finished the project the week of Christmas. It wasn’t a surprise, but she is grateful nonetheless.
It’s an original design with cues from a few products I found surfing the web. The 1/8”-thick earring rack is something I came up with because a few of my wife’s earrings won’t fit over the common rack’s top slot and I thought it was an inconvenience to remove the backing just to mount it through a whole, so the apostrophe shape seemed like the best remedy.
The ring storage is 1/8”-thick, dovetailed mahogany box (11-7/8”L x 3-3/4”W x 1-1/8”D) with 1/8”thick plywood bottom. It is stained with General Finishes Black Gel Stain and finished with three coats of Zinsser SealCoat. The foam ring-holding insert is folded over and glued then covered with Rockler’s adhesive velvet sheets. It is affixed to the case back with brass screws.
The bracelet holders were purchased from Amazon. I cut of the base and shortened the stem. A 1-5/8” stainless steel screw affixes it to the case back.
The case is made from 13/16”-thick mahogany and measures 65”H x 21”W x 4-1/2”T. The corners are dovetailed (in the wrong direction…’live and learn’) and the 1/2” mahogany plywood back-panel is screwed into its rabbeted back. The inner mirror (12” x 12”) has mitered corners and is also made from mahogany. The purpose of it is so my wife doesn’t have to close the door each time when selecting a necklace or earrings. It has proved to be a good idea. The shelves are all glued into stopped dados and the center shelf provides structural strength to hold the case sides in place. The space at the bottom is purposely left open. I will add a feature there in the future once the need arrises. It could be tilt-out bins (think potato bins), drawers or something else.
The mahogany door is mortice and tenoned using Freud 99-761 Ogee Rail & Stile Bits and 54-760 Glass Panel Door Cutter. I used these bits to create 2” tenon and chopped the mortice by hand. The mirrors are 1/4” thick and very heavy so I though a 2”+ tenon was warranted. The door attaches to the case using Rockler’s 15in-lb torsion hinges. I bought a heavier set first but they were extremely stiff. I can’t see ever needing more than 15in-lbs for most woodworking projects. The 45 necklace holders are 1-3/4” Shaker Pegs from Lee Valley. They finished with General Finishes Java Gel Stain and three coats of Deft Satin spray Lacquer. Their tenons are glued into mortices on mahogany strips (18”L x 1”W x 1/”T). The six strip affix to the frame to hold the 1/4” mahogany plywood mirror backer in place with brass screws.
The legs are also made from mahogany but they were from a different tree and much lighter than the feet and case (also true of the mirror and earring holders). They were stained with General Finishes CandleLite Gel Stain. The legs have double draw-bore (white oak dowels) tenons into the feet. The legs attach to the case using Lee Valley’s Chavel Bolts.
All the corners where eased using a plane and sanded to 180 grit. The project was finished with three coats of SealCoat shellac and three applications of Minwax pastewax using 0000 steel wool.
This project was a pleasure to work on and gives an extra sense of accomplishment knowing it was my design. This is my first large project without outside plans. I hope it inspires others to venture outside the box and develop your design skill.
My first "real" woodworking project of all-wood joinery. The bench is my own design of which I'm sure subconscious inspiration has come from somewhere else. I am very happy with the way this has come out thus far. Will add more photos after finishing.
After watching the Krenov inspired bookcase by TWW I decided I needed a bookcase more then a display case. This is my version... if sagging turns into an issue I do have a plan but thought I would try this first since the maple seems pretty sturdy.
