Beautiful piece Gus. If you don't mind me asking how many hours do you have in something like that?

Around 90 or so.

We don't keep real tight records of that but I'm pretty sure that is a good number.

This case we made the crown.

Keep in mind we outsource the doors and drawer boxes.

Although I am fine tuning the new dovetail operation for the cnc today. We will soon be able to do nested based dovetailed boxes from sheet goods.:thumbup:

Lacking you tooling, the first set
of those doors I did had major
pucker factor.
No one could have been more surprised
than I when the actually worked! :laughing::clap:

Thanks for all the kind words guys. This is my design so I guess I can let some praise in.

But the thread is not a show off and tell. It's to show you guys that are interested a fairly easy way to cover a large TV with doors in a shallow cabinet.


The finish is a mission style brownish stain and 3 coats of pre cat lacquer.

Thats a pricey garage to park the TV in!!
My first car was a 1974 MG B and I paid $3000 for it in 1977.

I could have darn near bought 4 of them for the price of this.:eek:

Gus. 90 hours? Seriously? You don't even make your doors, drawers or drawer fronts? Where is all this time going?
Are you including everything? Customer time, designing, ordering and building?


Looks like a great pc. I've actually made a similar crown. Real tough, huh? :laughing:

Yes all the hours, thats what counts isn't it?:whistling
We have a helper in the shop that is also included. He is getting better all the time but not super fast just yet.

The crown is simple for sure. That zero clearance miter trick on the table saw was used.
But scraping all the saw marks off and sanding for finish seemed to take a bit of time. Not something you want to overlook for sure.

When I did the crown I just ran it over the jointer to get rid of the saw marks.

That is the detail, Leo.
The crown is sitting on top of the cabinet rather than flat on the face.

Guess who cut it as if it was regular crown ? Yep yours truly.

Of course that meant a trip to the yard to grab another piece of white oak and mill it and scrape it and sand it.

Those are hours too.:furious:

Uhm...why? Why wouldn't you just do it the normal way? Is it removable? I made a large entertainment system that the crown unit was detachable.
