Nice to build
Frank: Here are some pictures of the end result.
Sheets are cut by the wood supplier. Large part body of maple veneer and dark part of mahogany veneer. Very nice combination.
Cabinet is made suitable for a 55 inch TV with TV lift.
Flap opens and closes automatically, controlled by the lift and a pulley with counterweight.
Nice to make. We love the result. Reactions from others very positive.
Rob (furniture plan): Indeed a very nice combination. And a good tip: MDF board with all kinds of wood-veneer types is for sale and this does not have to cost much more. There is not that much wood in this piece of furniture. Please note, the thickness is usually 19 mm: 18 mm mdf and 2x 0.6 (!) mm veneer.
It’s also good that you have adapted it to a 55-inch TV. It looks good in proportion. Become a very beautiful piece of furniture! Have fun with it.
