Notes:

Edge banding will be applied to the exposed edges of the plywood prior to assembly

Step One

Cut the pieces for the top & bottom. The depth and width will be cut according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The front groove will be located at least 3/4″ to 1″ back from the front edge. The rear groove will be located 1″ from the front groove.

It will be easy to cut the grooves on the table saw. Set the height of the blade as specified by the manufacturer’s instructions for the depth of the groove. Set the fence at 3/4″ to 1″ away from the blade and run the board through the saw. The blade will cut the groove at the specified depth. Reset the rip fence at 1-7/8″ to 2-1/8″ from the blade to cut the second groove. This measurement will allow for the groove already cut, as well as the 1″ space between the grooves. Make a pass through the saw.

Set the top piece aside.

Step Eight

Cut the pieces for the door frames. Drill pocket holes in each edge of the shorter pieces. Assemble the frame as shown using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. Locate the pocket hole screws as shown. Use a router and a 3/8″ rabbeting bit to cut a 3/8″ deep rabbet at the inside of the frame to allow for the glass. Use a hammer and a chisel to square the corners.

Run a bead of silicone along the rabbet and position the glass on top.

Install the sliding door hardware according to the manufacturer’s installation instructions.

    I, literally, just bought a console like this a few months ago. It’s gorgeous but I paid a fortune! Wish I could have none about your plans before paying for it!

      Awww, thanks Jessica!

    I like that it hides all the cords! I HATE cords…

    • CherTexter

      I don’t like seeing all of the cords nor do I like untangling them!
