Some suggestions welcome,
I'm currently planning on designing and making a dresser / entertainment center for my bedroom. Currently the TV is on top of a dresser that is about 20 years old, but is holding up pretty good. I have designed what I'm posting below. The dimensions are a little hard to read, but its almost 7 feet wide and 6 feet high. It's main purpose is to hold my 50 inch plasma and all the other electronics, but i also need to keep some storage area for clothes, so I wanted to try and put electronics on a stack to the right / left and have my drawers underneath the TV.
The compartment to the right will be a door that swings open, but another problem I'm having is thinking of a way to store my DVDs and Video games, and also hiding my sub woofer. I had saw one picture of someone with a roll-out shelf. I was thinking that I could hide the sub woofer inside the door on the bottom portion, and having a shelf that pulls out.
Does anyone also have any usefull sights? I have been trolling this thread for the past few days and have noticed a lot of broken links, but I plan to keep trolling over the newer threads and hopefully get information but stuff i need is:
Wood Ideas: I have a router I plan to do some custom stuff with like beveling the edges and perhaps making some designs on the drawers and door. Should I buy stuff that is already planned and sanded etc to save time? Or would i save a bunch more money doing it all myself?
Drawers: Finding the sides isn't too hard, but where is a good place to get the bottoms? Usually its pretty thin wood that I haven't really seen in Home Depot.
Glass Piece: I want to add a glass door to cover the electronic stack to the right to add a little more style to it.
Thank you for all the information.
