The television cabinet is roughly 35” W x 29” H x 17” D (when closed) and is mostly air dried black walnut. There is some walnut veneered ply on the (false) back panel and shelves. I kept some of the sappier wood with some really wild grain, but relegated it to the side panels. It’s finished with a couple of coats of Danish oil, followed by several coats of a super blonde dewaxed shellac, rubbed out, and then waxed.
I used an electric linear actuator from Progressive Automations to raise the television up and down. The screen size is 32” and takes about 25 seconds to raise.
