You can build this TV cabinet out of scaffold planks. Right, I'm going to start by making up one of our legs. [, SAWING ] I've taken our scarf plank and cut it to length with a circular saw. And I've thrown it through. The bench saw just to rip that rounded edge off. So when these glue up it's going to finish up nice and flush., So I'm just going to lay those down on my sash clamps there and throw on a little bit of this two-pot glue. I've already mixed up., You want to make sure you put a good amount of glue in there. It doesn't matter if it oozes out when you clamp it up.
Right, we've just got ta lay that down in our sash clamps and just gently tighten those up.. You just want to ensure that these two pieces of timber are quite nice and flush on either end. That there is lovely. Right. So you just want to take that excess glue off there.
It'll, make it easier when you're sanding it up. Now we're going to put this aside, let it dry up overnight and repeat the same process for all the other surfaces. OK, I've taken our planks out of the clamps. Now I'm ready to sand these up nice and smooth to make sure these are going to look mint. Once we put our stain on.We're now going to pee-drill our timber up, so we can attach our top to our sides. Again now our plank's 40 mil thick. So I'm going to set my square to 20 millimeters and just do a light mark across our plank. And I'm going to come in 40 millimeters from the edge of each plank.
I've got a 4 and 1/2 mil drill bit., And these are going to go there on our marks. For this cabinet we're drilling four pilot holes into the top and two into the sides. I've pee-drilled, all our pieces. Now I'm ready to put our glue on our surfaces. let's join these up. And now screw them together. Now just do the same for the other side and scrape off any excess glue. I've fixed my two legs on the top. Now, it's time to measure up for our shelf., When you're measuring up for your shelf just ensure that your tape is hard down at these two bottom points.
That way, you're going to get your true length of your shelf. Now our shelf is going to sit 150 mil from the underside of our top. So what I've done is pee-cut these little packers to 150 mil. They're going to sit on either side. And just got ta put a pencil mark. Now that's the top of my shelf! So I need to come 20 millimeters, which is half the thickness of our plan.Now I'm going to pee-drill a hole and I'm going to come in 110 millimeters. This will make sure it's exactly the same as what I've done when I fixed the leg to the top. Right, it's time to throw a little bit of PVA glue on the ends of our shelf. Now just drop down nice and gently onto your packers. And just pull your leg out a little bit, so you don't get a whole lot of PVA everywhere.
