Perhaps the single most common household appliance, a television set presents a unique storage problem–it needs to be hidden in plain sight. When it's idle, no one wants to see it; but when it's on, everyone wants a front-row seat.
This handsome TV cabinet project is a natural solution. Designed to fit snugly in a corner, it keeps the TV neatly out of sight when not in use, and in a space that's normally wasted.
Featuring clean lines and classic styling that will look good in any dcor, the cabinet conceals a 32-inch tall by 30-inch wide by 18-inch deep bay for the TV, as well as a removable shelf for a DVD player, cable box or game console. Under the TV bay, a big, full-extension storage drawer holds DVDs, video games and remote controls.
Made primarily of oak plywood (other woods will work), the project calls for all straight cuts and simple construction techniques. Although it requires careful measuring and cutting, full-scale drawings and detailed diagrams eliminate the guesswork.
The completed TV cabinet measures about 47 inches tall by 29 inches deep.
The Corner TV Cabinet plan (No. 864) includes step-by-step instructions with photos, full-size traceable patterns, detailed construction diagrams, a materials list and cutting layout and a toll-free help line for project questions.
