Hardwood Entertainment Unit
For my Major Design Project, I chose to design and produce a hardwood entertainment unit. Entertainment units are a major inclusion in any home living room. This piece of furniture provides a focal point to for our living room and stores a variety of such as DVDs, wiring, remotes, DVD players and consoles.
My motivation to create an entertainment unit was the practicality coupled with the decorative appeal it can bring to a lounge room. They are great in storing a range of items and are very useful in organising a room to function smoothly. Some features of my design include shelving for any purpose such as the stacking of books or magazines and a home for my DVD player or console. Underneath this shelving there is a soft close drawer and to either side of this there will be corresponding cupboards as a useful storage area for any unattractive feature or items that are in need of storing.
My entertainment unit has been produced from Spotted Gum and includes an attractive herringbone pattern on the doors and drawer. This feature adds to the visual appeal of the end product and helped to demonstrate a variety of practical skills. The entertainment unit itself includes a flush finish and incorporates a wide range of processes and features including adjustable shelving, soft close extension drawer runners and push-to-open cupboards.
