Modern look, traditional build

A combination of ‘quarter cut oak’ and ‘standard cut’ American oak has been used to form this modern TV cabinet. Initially designed by the client, I made small changes to bring symmetry to the piece without changing the overall look the client was wanting. Traditional joinery has been used throughout, which was especially crucial in the construction of the two cantilevered sections. Without this, any weight on the bases of the overhangs could cause a structural failure considering the weight of some high end amplifiers/receivers. Sliding dovetail joints were formed to lock the end panels to the base, which in turn were housed into the  leg uprights, maximizing strength in what could otherwise be a weak area. Two sliding shelves allow for the sound bar and Sonos system to amplify unrestricted sound when required.
