Before I could justify moving on from the old style television to a new flat screen, high definition, mega-mega pixel LCD video display, I needed some place to put the home theatre-sized monster. The only spot we realistically could put a large screen was in a corner area that was not conducive to wall mounting. Plus, I still have some component stereo pieces that needed a home, such as a CD jukebox, turntable (?) and an amplifier through which all audio and all video go to provide surround sound for music for anything on the TV. I also knew I wanted to get a Blu-Ray player, and all those electronic boxes need a place. So, this cabinet was my solution. It was designed to hold the electronics, some DVDs and albums, and have a place on top for the TV.
This piece is made from quarter-sawn oak and finished with a slightly darker stain than I had used on any other pieces. Glass doors were incorporated into the design to keep out some of the dust while allowing remote controls to operate all the goodies inside.
