TV stand

Filed under: projects — howarth frank @ 2:52 pm

The middle of three cabinets is done. The drawers slide nicely, and it seems to sit level with no rocking. The wood is kaya. some day we will get a flat TV to go on top, and i would like to build a computer to go in the right side drawer.

TV stand

Building the legs for the TV stand has been slow.  I ended up making a frame the size of the bottom of the TV stand, and attaching the legs to that frame.

earthquake straps

Filed under: house projects,wood shop — howarth frank @ 12:58 pm

I’m taking a break from the TV stand this weekend and put in earthquake straps on the house.   I did not want some contractor coming in a making a mess of the shop. It also saves us about $2500 to have me do it.

TV stand

This is the forth attempt at the TV stand, it seems to be going together this time.  It is a box with mitered corners attached with biscuits, and trim on the front.  Each section will have two drawers
