Book case / tv cabinet finished

Hello Friends,

 

Just wanted to show you guys final outcome of my book case / tv cabinet. Took about 3 weeks in total. Very happy with final outcome.

 

Cheers,

Looks fantastic! 👍

How tall? And how did you make the 'thick' sections?

Hello @Noyade 

 

It is 1.6 meters tall 800mm wide 300 deep. The thick sections are just 40 x 19 pine lengths attached to the front to make it look thick

That looks amazing, @redracer01. Well done!

 

Is there anything you would have done differently or any elements that have worked out really well?

 

I trust your project will provide some great inspiration to other members.

 

Many thanks for sharing.

Hello @MitchellMc 

 

Possibly put in some book case lights, but the missus said that the room was bright enough to see the displays.

 

Cheers,

Red

@redracer01,

 

Seeing the models differs from being able to examine all their glorious details under LED lights. That's perhaps just my opinion, though. A retrofit of some strip lighting would go unnoticed and could be engaged only when an epic gaming session is about to commence.

That is mint. I'd love to do something similar but my wife doesn't want any cabinets. I have to listen to her because... well, I'm still trying to work that one out.

 

I will borrow some ideas though because they could help with the wall mounted shelf for under the wall mounted TV. This is so we can have the AppleTV, and DVD player out of the way.

Look great Mate why did you make it out of ply or pine or MDF?
