Here is the completed cabinet for the 31″ computer monitor I’ve been working on. You’ve heard me refer to this project as my “head scratcher” because of the requirements my client had. He knew it would be somewhat tricky but I believe I’ve given him what he wants. That’s always my goal, to give the client more than he thought he’d get. Delivery is next week and I’m anxious to get his reaction to the real thing, not just blog photographs!
The size of this ended up being 27″ tall by 36 1/2″ wide and 14″ deep. He requested storage space below and that has a depth of 13″and has about 4″ of space. In the picture above you can see the glow of the power button which controls the monitor power as well as the 3″ diameter fans located at either end. The wood used for this piece is Alder with an Alder plywood used for the panels in the doors. The monitor was inserted from the front so the trim is only applied with brads in case it ever needs to be removed. The back allows full access to whatever may be needed. This piece is finished with General Finishes EnduroVar. This is a water borne polyurethane and 3 coats were applied with a HLVP sprayer.
Here are a few additional shots of this project:
