TV Cabinet Update


After last week, we're on the home stretch of the construction of the large tv cabinet we have been working on (See the previous post). This past week we fitted and hung the doors, made the moldings and the base and tomorrow we will attach the base and make the final adjustments to the doors and it will be ready for finishing ...

The ply frame for the base and the base face pieces on the cabinet break ... Normally we would make this first, but the way the carcase and end panels were configured, I wanted to fabricate and attach the end panels to be sure the projections of the base were correct ... Unusual, I admit. Click the photos to enlarge them ...

Dan,
I'm working on the design for an entertainment center cabinet. I'd like to know more about that door hardware. Who's the manufacturer? How was it to install? How much adjustability is there?

Thanks

We got the KV 8070 slides from Woodworkers Supply ... Here's the link

They are reasonably prices and work well ... The tv will hang on a sanus bracket from Amazon whenever it gets here ... It was backordered
