Well after searching for a large enough stand to house all my equipment I decided to build my own. This is just to hold over until I start my dedicated theater. Requirements we to hold all my equipment, 60" Sony tv, projector screen to come down in front of tv and sit within a 1/2 inch if stand. Also all cooling to keep equipment happy and lighting. I took some photos along the way but as you know you get wrapped up
In building and forget to take a photo. It's made of 3/4 oak ply and solid oak face. The drawers are made of pine. Dimensions are 85 L X 22 D X 26 H.

Starting lumber. Home Depot did my long rips for me right on the money with my help.

After making my cross cut jig I cut my vertical supports and upper/lower pieces. Here is squaring and assembly.

Very nice, I'm pretty sure most people would be unable to tell that wasn't a retail piece. Love the dark stain.

Nice work, I love making things like this but have no way the skills you do. I have a couple of questions since the wife now saw it and is asking me to make something like this in the future. I started one yesterday but it will only be temporary to hold the TV and center channel until we upgrade tv. Questions: I can't tell how you secured the vertical and horizontal pieces in the 3rd and 4th pictures. Did you use finish nails and then putty the holes? If so what kind of putty did you use that looks so good even with stain. Same thing with the front facia board how did you fasten them?

We discussed this on the other thread but when you get around to doing it can you please post pictures of the valance type cover for the screen. Also, any chance you have pictures of the TV bracket holder thing you make in the back of the entertainment center? Sorry for all the requests, I just think its perfect for my future project. I love the front facia piece going all the way around, it gives it more of a furniture look that just a square box. You did an awesome job. This is the one I made yesterday its very simple and will serve its purpose for the next couple of months while I finish the speakers and decide on a TV.

Pictures are terrible it was almost midnight when I finished the first coat of primer. It will go underneath the TV, I had to remake the old one since the new center channel is a monster measuring in at 10" Tall and almost 29" wide.

Great Job.
What screen did you use and do you have any problems with reflection off the TV through the screen?

One day I will start the new theater....... one day

Nice.

I don't have all the skills. I do know some woodworking but the internet was my friend.

All the joints are pretty much with a pocket hole jig by Kreg. This is a life saver. All my bottom areas are pre drilled and screwed from the bottom. Then the tops are pocket hole screws. With pocket hole screws they are hidden up high in each compartment. You then can use wood plugs over the pocket holes but if you cannot see them then why create more work.

The face frame is all built with pocket hole too. Then that is attached to the front with hidden pocket holes too. The face frame provides the hiding points and for my led strips.

The back board is made from the same 3/4 oak ply with the solid oak up and down the sides to add strength. Also the solid oak is attached with pocket screws too.

A Kreg pocket hole jig will prove its weight in gold over and over. I also purchased a few if their clamps too. I also bought there shelf pin drilling jig. Tools are a great investment no matter what. I already have table saw, skill saw, jig saw, chop saw, drill press, and all the hand tools.

I spent months drawing and designing before I ended up with what you see. I have my final drawing on paper and it's a perfect match. I also ran into some trial and error like anything else. I can take more detailed photos with my good camera. All these photos don't do it justice. When my wife has a grin you know it has to be good. She was telling me that she was picturing a square wood box in her living room and would not have the heart to tell me it sucks. But she said its way better than anything we looked at and much cheaper.

One thing is its very heavy.

I have had the screen for a few months. It is a Elite Screens 100h motorized. I have it come down in front of the tv on my other stand. There is no reflections as the screen is black backed and no light passes through. I also used semi gloss poly so there is very little reflection off the wood.

In the 3rd picture you can see the 4 pocket holes under the speed square on the inside. Also you can see the vise kreg clamp and attached is the jig. The special drill bit is also in the drill. The kit is $40 at Lowes and use their correct screws. But the clamp too it's $20 but worth it. I used the clamps for more than just the pocket holes. It has large pads so no damage to wood.

Do a YouTube search for pocket hole Kreg. You will see how easy it is, I used no glue either. Just remember that you cuts are square and straight. This is why almost
All my main boards where cut with a home made skill saw jig. Only thing I used my table saw what for dado and drawer build. Chop saw was my best friend too. I cannot stress square, square cuts. Make sure you equipment is trued up. When doing face frame cut one piece make a fit. Then over cut the others. Then clamp all pieces together and cut all at once. Then flip and cut again. That way all pieces are the same. This is applied when doing same measured multiple cuts. Don't measure and cut. Then try to make the same measured cut multiple times. I hope that makes sense.

I want to thank you for posting this great equipment cabinet build. People who has never done a DIY custom build like this can't appreciate what it takes to build something as great as this build, and how much time it takes to figure out all the details. I do! I really like the idea of the pocket hole joints using the jig. I'm going to use that Idea on my very small equipment cabinet build! Thanks for posting this build, and giving me all these great ideas!

Nice! I have plans for something along these lines. My Kreg jig came in last week, they look to be great time savers. What did you do for the interior cabinet lighting?

Thanks for all the comments.

The lights are for under a car. I had them laying around. I purchased a 12 volt ir light controller, and used a old 12 volt power pack from a external cd drive. I can post a link to ebay for the lights. I think the kit is $59 for 14 1 ft bars.

Tomorrow I will attach the panels to the frame. Then I need to take down the screen to make attaching points to my wood ceiling bracket. Stain and poly. Should be all done Sunday.

I assume you are going to stain to match the cabinet? How will you attach the panels? Its going to look awesome. Great custom work. Already started looking at a kreg system. Looks like about $120 for the big set with everything included. Waiting for a used one on ebay or craiglist.

Yes, stained to match. To attach the panels I'm pre drilling on the press and short screws. This way I can stain them separate.

As for the kreg kit. You are looking at the big one that clamps to a table? You can get the little one like mine for $40, clamp $20, and assorted screw kit for $29. I bought one extra clamp and their 90 degree pocket clamp. I'm going to need a new drill bit soon they sell for $16. But I have used the piss out of mine.

Man that looks awesome. I showed the wife and even she approves. I didn't get the go ahead but I did get the "maybe, lets see how the rest of your speakers turn out." That of course to me means, YES! Thanks for posting this I know sometimes its just easier to work through it than stop and take pictures. It looks great, can't wait to see it with stain.

I finished today and took pictures. Will post after dinner. When we hung it earlier my wife had a big grin and said she loves the whole setup.

Awesome job, love it. It fits in beautifully. Looks classy, very custom.

Screen to eyes is 8-9 feet. Screen is 100 inch.

Thanks, I'm beyond speechless how it all came out. I need to get some rubber washers to isolate the valance from the screen mount. When the screen goes up and down the vibration goes thru the whole valance and makes it noisier. Not a big deal but I will try.

Very nice, appreciate the post.  Re media cabinet, I am designing something similar to house all my awkward sized components and glad I found this thread.

 

What is the material used (oak, dimensions?) for the face frame and how is it attached?  Thanks!

Cabinet itself is 3/4 oak plywood. The face frame is 1 1/2 x 3/4 solid oak. The dimensions are 85 wide X 22 deep X 26 high.

The face frame and 99% of construction is held together with pocket screws. You can see in photos above with the projector screen valance. Pretty much all pocket holes are all hidden.

I know this is older, but I absolutely love this build! Great job bluer101! This is exactly what I have been looking for and I will hopefully have my own built before the end of the year.

Thanks. It was a great experience too. Everyone that's sees it in person thinks I bought it until I show them the build.
