So you've just went and spent the
big bucks on one of those really cool 16 X 9 flat screen televisions and by gosh
there is absolutely no way the thing is going to fit in your entertainment
center. Not to worry, I've designed a simple entertainment center just for you.
This entertainment center was designed for the home handyman who has a few
woodworking tools but not a complete workshop and features adjustable shelves on
either side of the television and a two door cabinet below the television. There
is plenty of storage space for VCR tapes, CD's, DVD's and books.
The primary tools that you will
need to build, assemble, and enjoy this entertainment center are:
Router with straight cutting bit
Biscuit Cutter (plate joiner)
The assembled overall dimensions of this
entertainment center which has been designed for a 42" 16 X 9 widescreen
television are 96 inches wide X 72 inches high X 18 inches deep.
I will post the drawing on this site as a bitmap
file, a 2D drawing, a 3D solids model, and later a rendering photo. For the 2D
drawing and 3D solids model, you will need AutoCAD 2000 or an AutoCAD
See the bitmap file, download the 2D drawing (.dwg)
or download the solids model
