I had to make a TV console and really wanted to try some good joinery techniques. So I took this project to try it out and in the end I did like the way it turned. I will probably do more wood project like this one.
Of course I did not end up with perfect joints but using some wood filler fixed everything. Certainly with more practice I will get better result but for now let's me get you throw the process of making this dovetailed TV console.
I started by buying rough lumber of beech wood. Their width was different and had to make some calculation to get the most from each board. I had the 3D model I made and like a puzzle I managed to feel all the gaps. It turned out that I had some of the boards with crooks, bows and cups. To get better result with those wood deformations resulting from the drying process, I had to change some of my calculation. I used a circular saw for rough length dimensions and some of the boards where sawed on their length to get used in different pieces. I had to finish all the cuts with the hand saw because the cut depth of my circular saw wasn't enough. I ended up with some good pieces remaining for other future projects.
