Introduction: TV Corner Stand
Having bought a large screen TV,
I didn't want a glass TV stand that the shop kept insisting on.
So I decided to make my own custom fit corner stand.
I built it to fit my home theater kit, as none of the shop bought units would do.
Step 1: The Cut
I used an 8' x 4' x 3/4" Sheet of MDF.
I had the cutting list of sizes with me and asked the store
to cut the board to my measurements.
Step 2: The Shape
I cut and shaped the edges with a router,
then sanded the sides smooth
Step 3: The Build
Once the panels were cut to size,
I used a fostner bit to cut out concealed joints.
and used screw and barrel fittings, to hold it all together.
Step 4: The Rigidity
To make the cabinet sturdy, I used 1/4" Ply as back panels.
This made the whole thing solid.
The "Feet" were made using stacked bits of rounded edged board,
the stack was three pieces, one shorter than the next by an inch .
Step 5: The Finish
The unit was undercoated, then painted with satin finish paint.
It had a couple of coats of satin varnish to protect the surface.
The doors were fitted with concealed hinges and slim brushed steel handles.
the internal shelves hold a collection of DVD's
