Sapele TV Console
« on: March 03, 2017, 04:25 PM »
Howdy,

Here is a cabinet and TV mount that I recently finished for a customer. The Cabinet is all continuous grain sapele with waterfall edges, and birch ply for the interior. The base is laminated ply to show the plies. The TV is mounted on a false wall (attached via French Cleat) with a sapele shelf on top. Normally I would use a deeper shelf and use crown moulding to support the shelf, but she just wanted a board under the shelf rather than crown. The cabinet is about 36" high, 62" long and 19" deep, and the top of the wall shelf is about 72" off the floor. My first time working with sapele and in Mid-Century Modern design. She showed me a photo of what she liked and I went from there. The equipment shelves are on drawer slides, and there is an IR repeater so the remotes work with the doors closed. There is room in the back bottom of the cabinet for a power strip and cable management.
As addictive as crack but more expensive.

Oohhhhhhhhhh, Festool.........

I really like the grain layout on the front. Pulled it off very well. Just curious, what does that run a bd. Foot in your parts?

That is some great work there. Love the way the Sapele looks across the front.

Sapele is one of my favorite woods.  Easy to work with and finishes beautifully.  The ribbon grain frequently has great chatoyance too.

You did a great job.  Details, grain match, color match, finishing are all excellent

Thanks for sharing!
