Next Project – TV Lift Cabinet

Yes, plywood .. I’m using plywood for this project.


Plywood, especially full sheets of 3/4″ are a pain to work with.  I already miss my hand planes.  Turns out, I’ve never made a plywood furniture project.

  1. Nice project Marilyn, doesn’t seem to hard to me. With your skills, you should be able to knock this one out!! 🙂

    Don’t put all your hand planes away. They are still useful to trim the edges of plywood to get everything fitting properly.

    Don’t fret, Marilyn. Plywood is quite forgiving to work with and on a big project much, much faster.

    Good luck with the TV Cabinet. Looks like it’ll be very nice.

    Thanks ya’ll!!
    Sam, you’re right about plywood. I guess I’ll be doing a lot more sharpening.
    Dyami, I’m hoping your right about going together faster. I’d sure like this to get done more quickly than some of my other larger projects. 😀

  5. Are you putting in one of those super cool remote control lifts? If you do you need to work on your maniacal, super villain laugh to go with it. I need to build something like this too so I can justify getting rid of my old CRT TV.

      Yes! I am. Maw Ha Ha! The TV will be stored below the lid normally and a, hopefully framed by me, picture will sit above the TV cabinet. Then, when someone comes over to watch the tube, it will lift magically. Maaaa Haaa Ha! 😉

    Marily, your work is superb!! Where are you getting the lift from?
