I always like to mix new technology with an old look and that is just what we got to do with this project. Behind the doors lie a 40" Samsung TV that pops out of the top. This project was for the office in a private library.

Here is a pic that shows the curve of the front. these are the rails

                               Here is a picture of the legs with the mortices  cut for the rails. Below shows the Brusso knife hinges mortice which must be done before the assembly .

Here is a shot of the assembled cabinet. Next the fun part.

This is a picture of one of the side doors sideways in the vice.

Small doors done and working drawer fronts in place

Below is the almost complete cabinet. All that is missing is the library seal we had made by Dover Designs.

Below is a short video of the vacuum bag used to bend the laminated and veneered panels. It is an amazing way to press anything flat or curved. 

Here is a picture of the Nexus 21 TV Lift installed.
