Sellers Home TV Unit: Episode 10

Creating drawers that fit well and then all of the components that must keep the drawer floating in and out for the next hundred years means accuracy and care to ensure the parts fit well to the surround. In this episode, we finalise the drawer making and fit them to the opening, having scribed the drawer bottoms to ensure that the drawer, once finished, will retain the perfect shape before we glue up the drawers. Paul also works on the bottom drawer to fit the front to the opening and attach it to the main drawer. Once the knobs are fitted Paul begins to apply several coats of shellac as a protective finish. We do hope that you enjoy this final episode as much as Paul did the series.

    As usual, this was really great viewing, Paul. I don’t have a need for a TV stand, so I won’t be making this one, but there were so, so, many useful bits throughout the series that I WILL be using in other pieces I’m designing. The techniques from the curved drawer fronts were worth the price of admission all on their own. Many thanks.

      Thanks for the feedback. Good that while you won’t be making the project you still found the tips and techniques helpful.

    I’m so impressed. Still a little confused with the geometric nuances but very impressed.

    I have the same question at the conclusion of every piece…Why do I feel the same satisfaction at watching Paul finish a pice as I feel when I finish a piece of my own? Absolutely marvelous build Mr Sellers!

      That’s great to hear that you have that same sense of satisfaction. Glad you enjoyed following along.

    Are drawings for the TV-unit available? I love this project. Thank you Paul and team.

    It’s amazing and very rewarding to see Paul working!
    In this kind of project which has “built in” drawers that are snug with a tight fit (The Laptop Desk was another one, I think), how does Paul addresses the expansion and contraction of the wood? Because, since they are so tight, he doesn’t leave any room for wood movement, right?
    By the way, will there be any, since the drawers have a dovetail joint?

    I am curious about the technique used to shape the drawer fronts, keeping them smooth and even. Did I miss that step somewhere?

    The voice over narration without the music was brilliant! Thank you for listening to the feedback and giving it a try. Made hearing and following what was happening much easier and more enjoyable.
