Description by Frans

New "TV cabinet" after a reorganization of the living room. Equipment can be placed out of sight behind the TV. Planks are placed around a protruding wall to mask the wall. Drop-off point to put nice things down. Cherry wood furniture board taken because a number of furniture are made of cherry wood.

How I made this project

  • Have the shelves and upright cut to size from 26 mm thick cherry wood furniture board
    • li>
    • mold made of 10 mm thick MDF to properly mark the protruding wall. The mold has been made slightly wider at the wall in order to be able to properly measure the wall in relation to the mold. The wall is not that tight in terms of dimensions. Each plank is therefore slightly different
    • Furniture connectors made of cherry wood
    • Stand equipped with 5 furniture connectors that are mounted with 10 mm dowels. Planks secured to the furniture connectors with Directa screws from Hettich so that the shelves do not tilt.
    • Directa screws from Hettich used to mount furniture connectors on the wall. First, 10 mm holes were made in the wall, plugs were placed, and drill holes were marked on the furniture connectors with the center points of a dowel set. Here too, the planks were secured against tilting with Directa screws.
    • All screws slightly recessed and covered with a wood-colored plastic plate
    • Unable to make blind installation due to lack of professional tools
    • After complete assembly, the "TV cabinet" dismantled again to complete, sand and paint everything. Applied 3 layers of Glitsa furniture lacquer. Apply the first coat with a brush and the other two coats with a roller. Dilute the lacquer with 5% water to create a thin layer of lacquer three times. Then the "TV cabinet" reassembled.
