Jurassic Park Entertainment Center

This design started out as a wardrobe, which was really boring. Then I saw some entertainment centers with sliding barn doors and thought they were cool so I ran with that instead. The barn doors are my personal preference, they may not be for everyone.

Toy Chest That Transforms Into A Playset

I attempted this design a year or so ago, but when I finished it the thing looked like a deathtrap so I shelved it, and opted to post this instead. This time I took child safety into consideration (for once) and made a super-simple toy chest that transforms into a playset.

TV Stand For Game Consoles

Here is a TV stand for displaying game consoles behind glass doors. In my experience, glass doors are often a hindrance for accessing electronics, so I wanted a system where I can stow these doors on demand. This is ideal for an enclosed display case that is also completely accessible when needed.

Inspired by convertible automobiles, the glass doors stow on the fly. They piggyback onto side drawers (used for controllers and games) for the sliding/stowing mechanism. Now there’s no glass in the way of gaming.

Guillotine Dresser And Mirror

The long-awaited followup to my Ouija Board coffee table and rug design, I present a mirror and dresser combo that has a Guillotine theme. Nothing disturbing about this at all, ha-ha. This can also be a table and mirror combination, for a more ‘raised platform’ appearance, and to allow it to be parked in a hallway.

Doorcade

I’d love to get a MAME arcade cabinet but they would just take up too much space, so I thought of building one into your average door. It would need wheels to support the weight of the flat TV/electronics, and a power source would be tricky to execute. All said, I think this is do-able.

Nintendo Entertainment Center

This entertainment center is a copy of the ‘World of Nintendo’ display case that used to reside in video game stores back in the 90’s, minus the sliding glass on the front. It’s the ideal size for a flat panel display and some game consoles.
