Audio Visual Shelf Unit
Our Sony TV in the den sits on a desk that once was a sewing
machine work station that had belonged to Cindy's grandmother and
mother. The "fold down" sewing maching is no longer part
of the desk.
For this little AV shelf unit I used the same "salvage plywwod" that I used in the toybox project.
This sheet had Baltic Birch on one side and Black Walnut on the other.
First step was to route 3/4 inch dadoes.
Interior shelves were made from 3/4 Baltic birch plywood
This photo shows Bessey clamps during the shelf and carcase glue up.
Shelf edge banding of walnut hardwood was installed with glue and shot with 18 gauge brads.
Here is the unit after a couple
of applications of Teak oil.
Plywood glue blocks were put on the bottom to accomodate easy glide slides to make it simple to pull the shelf unit out for wiring tasks.
The shelf unit fit nicely into
the space beneath the desk.
