Last call for credenza photos

Within the next few weeks I plan to rebuild my living room credenza. This is a 1979 with the long self destructing tambour door that makes an s-curve and is now falling apart, like the rest of the credenza.

A while back I requested that people post photos of any rebuild work they had done. Thanks to those that did. While I have my design pretty much figured out, if anyone has any recent photos they'd care to post I'd like to see them for any last minute ideas.

I'll post some photos when the job is done. A brief description of my plan is that I will re-use the existing top and fold-down table, though those will be refurbished with new plastic edge trim. The base will have a style and rail type cabinet front with some inset panels that I plan to make out of salvaged tambour material. I'll be using walnut or another dark wood so the finished product should have an almost factory look.

Christopher

Christopher...look forward to seeing the finished project. Right now I have everything torn out of our "78" but the credenza. Looks like we need a new fridge and so the credenza may go as well. Post some of your progress for the rest of us to see.

I did the opposite of your plan. I kept the credenza and made a new top to accommodate my 37" Mitsubishi TV. Photos at View from Sofa to "Entertainment Center" - Photo Gallery.

Thanks for the pics so far. Bob, can you post a link to your Safari blog? Vaughan, nice work on that top. The mica finish you chose has a nice factory look.

Nice work, Bob. Like you, I plan to give my job a factory look. I've also seen how blogs are set up here and might start my own as a reference for others that might do a similar project.

I plan to buy the wood tonight and hopefully start some of the demolition work.

Christopher
