It's always nice to finish up for Christmas after delivering your last commission of the year. I installed this TV Cabinet with integrated TV Lift yesterday and was extremely pleased (and relieved) it all worked perfectly the first time!
The cabinet is made from the client's own oak and features a pair of book-matched doors. The contrasting colour of the heartwood and sapwood have been used to give visual impact to the straight grain wood. An inset finger pull completes the doors and matches other pieces made previously.
Although the design is in a more traditional style to my natural edge work, there were plenty of challenges to keep me on my toes. The cabinet houses a 46" tv and is about 1300mm in length - making wide doors requires skill to ensure that there is no movement or warping when glued up and installed. I used quarter sawn oak for the door frames and lid as it is the most stable cut of wood to use.
A great end to a difficult year.
