I designed the floating media console to fit. The two side bays are mostly shot behind sliding doors and are for holding stuff like games and DVDs and really, whatever the heck else, who want. The majority of the console is made of 3/4 inch plywood with a popular face frame and a 1/8 inch hardboard. For the doors, I could have gotten all the plywood pieces out of one sheet, hadn't made it one inch shorter, but that didn't occur to me until it's too late in the process.
I left a lot of space behind the a/v component to allow not only for wires and cable to pass freely, but to also have better airflow and to give myself a little more working room since I wouldn't be able to access all this from behind. After its installed, the entire console is held up with a hardwood piece that is the early connected of the console and it's screwed into multiple studs, using three-inch long screws. So, let's get started. One of my goals for this build was to exclusively use materials that I already had on hand that meant pulling out this sheet of hope' veneer plywood. Why do I have open ear plywood? I don't like to look a red oak at all.
Maybe it was the only low void plywood available when I picked it up. I thought maybe I needed it sooner than I did well it's here now. So now is the time to use it. I started by rough cutting the sheet into three strips, essentially the top bottom shelf and the side it would have been all of the size instead of just some of them had they all been about one inch shorter. I always rough that a little bit wide, so I can use my table-saw to get to the final precise dimension later rough crosscuts are also done with a knife.
