Stereo Cabinet Part 2

A couple of days ago I got my cabinet finished.  I think it took about 5 days total to get it finished.  The results turned out pretty good for a first time cabinet build.  It sure makes the entire setup so much nicer to look at.  The height of the cabinet might be a little high for most TV viewing, its perfect for changing LP’s on the turntable.  TV viewing isn’t my primary activity in the man cave so having it a little higher is trade off I’m more then willing to accept.  Plus the wife acceptance factor hit an all time high as she really thinks it looks great.

With all that weight of gear, I’m sure glad I put caster wheels on the bottom that are heavy duty.  I suspect at least 400 lbs is being supported.

Stereo Cabinet Part 1

This week I started on a new project.  I’m building a new entertainment cabinet for my system.  I’ve used the industrial rack for far too many years and I’m tired of looking at it.  Below is the overall design.  The

rack design final

After a day and half, this is what I’ve gotten done so far.  The base has been completed and the drawer slides installed.

The wood strips on top are a jig I built to keep the dowels and camlock anchors all aligned.  I’m building the upper half in a way that I can disassemble it so that I can get it down stairs
