New woodworking project.


We replaced our 52" Sony flat screen tv to a 65" Samsung 3-D smart tv.
The wall we placed it on in 10 wide, so I had to do some design adjustments,
as I wanted to keep our DVD cab and our bottom console that the TV sits on.

The old set up had a large curio on the right and on the tv there were
side walls and a 15 1/2" wide mantle top on the top of the side walls.

First we made the book cabinet on the right -- the size is 19"w x 37"H x 9"D
The existing DVD cab (that we made several years ago) is 20"W x 7"D x 29"H.

Then we made the shelf and brackets, the shelf is 9 3/4" deep...
lastly we made the box stand that the TV sits on ...it's 4" high.
The cabinet that we have the TV sitting on we made in 2005.

The room looks so much bigger as the TV profile hugs the wall much closer
than our old set-up. The TV stand on the old TV made the tv stick out into
the room 10"...plus the old mantle top was 15 1/2" deep.
This Tv is 6" into the room, with a 9 3/4" mantle top.

Btw...this wood was all recycled wood from my sons church, they replaced
the kneelers and threw out the old oak kneelers. There was a lot of prep work
removing staples, screws, and filling all the holes and running it all through
the planer.
I'll be back with the pics.

The hardest part was getting the stain job to match the existing cabs in the room. The existing cabs are QS white oak, the new cabs are flat sawn red oak.

Your work looks great. Thanks for sharing.

What are your walls made out of? Is that wall paneling cut diagonally, or something else?

Hi Rockstar,
The walls are 1" thick tongue and grove cedar. We installed it
many years ago on an angle. Several years ago we 'white washed'
it with light beige watered down paint that we ragged on.
We redid it again about two years ago.
It looks nice in person as the natural
cedar hue still glows through the paint.

Thanks rockstarr, I want to point out that the cedar was natural, it had no
finish on it, so it allowed the paint to penetrate slightly, as well as the natural
wood tone to show through.
If anyone wants directions on how to do it, I'll be happy share how we did it.
BtW...we were afraid of ruining the wood and the look of the room, but after
making the commitment to do it, discovered it was somewhat forgiving.

Here is more pics, You can see the 'under neither wood tones' that we
like, that made it unique...this would have not been possible
if we just painted it.
