HI, I am going to build basically this exact cabinet. Was wondering if you are willing to send over the plans to me? Really appreciate it!

If if that doesn't cover it.. I don't know what will....

Awesome, Thank You!

I'm about 1/3 of the way through the project, but didn't make the dado cuts for the bezel.Any suggestions?

They are not required.  Most bezels have 3/4" blocking behind them.  You should be able to do that and make the glass a little narrower.  If you didn't do them on the shelf or the speaker box - then you can also do the same - but you may have to add some edging to the face that you can tack down to hold it in place.  I used dados only because the lines were nice and clean..

super clean. this is real close to the cabs I build at school, I might just use your drawings and stop cutting the sides myself. Its my least favorit part of making a cab. Its the only part i dont let the students do and I know a locsl shop that will do it cheap. I always knock 14 inches off the bottom so they ca sit and play because bar stool just get in the way and I have 30 standard chairs already

Geat job :applaud:
They treated me like an animal and that's what I became.

My school is for minors who have served long sentences and cant go back to regular school. A lot of them shot people who didnt die in the middle of gang warfare shoot outs. There are a lot of 13 year olds pulling triggers out here in Stockton

bperkins, great job on this cabinet! I was sitting down to look for a style to build for my upcoming cab, and got sucked into reading this whole thread. Very well documented, and I got some great ideas and tips from it. This is just about exactly the size / shape / design I was looking for!

Things I love :
- The filler space between the CP and glass, as a great place to stash a pile of tokens.
- The cabinet handles and casters
- the 1/2" angled bezel between the glass and monitor
- The slightly bowed front panel on the CP. Great, subtle design element. I think I could pull that off with a buttload of clamps instead of a vacuum.

Also, much appreciated that you posted the plans and drawings with specs. Very cool all around!

Nice build!  Just getting started on mine and appreciate all the details and pictures.  Wish I had half of the woodworking tools you do......

The majority of this hobby can be had with a circular saw, jigsaw, and router. I have a lot of tools but have only used these for the most of the cabs I have built!

would you happened to have in sketchup all the parts laid out on the 4x8 plywood, it would make it easier to start this project so i know all the pieces fit?
unless i didn't see it, i looked in the sketchup file you had for download but didn't see it in there.

thank you!
