Wide-Screen TV Cabinet

The TV cabinet on page 18 of Woodsmith No. 169 is large enough to support most flat-panel, wide-screen television sets and would make a great addition to an entertainment room.

You'll find almost all of the materials needed to build the cabinet at your local lumberyard or woodworking store. But there are a few items you might need to order from mail-order suppliers before you begin the project.

Pocket screws were used to assemble the base of the cabinet.  These screws can be found at almost any woodworking store.  I used #7 x 1¼" fine-threaded screws (38502) from Rockler.

You'll also need some hardware for the drawers and doors. I used Blum full inset 120° self-closing hinges (00B15.24) to mount the doors. And installed a set of 32mm (01X43.22) and 96mm (01X43.24) pewter double bar door pulls for opening the drawers and cabinet doors. A pair of black 16" full-extension slides (02K36.16) was used to mount the large center drawer. All of this hardware was ordered from Lee Valley.
