Nice work. I have to ask where you got your inspiration? I work in an unfinished furniture store and I see aspects of this piece that I would swear came from some of what is sold in this market. Did you visit furniture stores for your ideas or did you use a plan?
P.S. Don't mean that to sound negative...it's a good thing, to me.

Actually no... I drew up this corner entertainment center a while back, actually this is my second one i built. the first was decked out with crown molding a bit more traditional looking... I like the arched front better. I see what you mean though it does look very similar to something you can get from an unfinished furniture store. That thing is pretty sturdy though made of 3/4 birch ply and solid poplar.

Nice work. Is the back angled for a corner cabinet? How did you decide on the width to height space considering the new TV dimensions? How about a detail of the top center.

I think it's a great idea to have a tv cabinet a corner design if you're going to be using a CRT tv.
Some of even the largest cabinets can't handle over 30" tv's because of the length of their footprint, but that might just allow a larger one.
Very nice btw.

Good looking cabinet. You did a great job. A good deal of planning involved. It's going to be very useful. Proportions fit the size very well.

Thanks - Yeah the dimensions will fit a 36" + CRT, Actually it will fit a 37 inch Flat panel LCD too. I will get you a detailed pic. of the top here shortly. Yeah it is a corner unit, takes up less space in a room and with many living rooms nowadays they place the fireplace in the exact spot where the TV should go! So this solves that problem.

Completed this one a few months back for my Brother. He needed a Armoire for his TV and components. Made with Birch Ply, and birch face frame. You can see the hinges this was prior to placing doors on. After this we painted her a cream color using a oil based paint.
