a friend of mine recently decided he did not want this Cabinet anymore.

I looked at it and decided I could make an Entertainment center out of it for a Lady who needs some furniture.

The cabinet has been gutted and the drawers were cut down to nothing .. I Had thought about making the top drawer fronts into doors and put a shelf in for a DVD player and maybe digital cable box. I would make the bottom a drawer.

Here is what it really looks like.

Here is what is left of the drawers.

The inside from the back.

The top drawerspace has a groove in the back of it. I figure I can cut a tongue in plywood and fit it to the groove with glue and Kreg screws into the sides.. I figure the bottom Drawer is pretty easy. just make a box for the front.

I need to figure out some way to hinge the top drawer fronts. I would like to hinge them down but not sure that is possible. If I have to a I can go to the side.

So what do you thinnk any ideas or suggestions? All are welcome to make suggestions.

Have you looked into some 180 degree European hinges? They have a compound action & may work for the top drawer/door to drop it down.
