Perhaps the most common household appliance, a TV presents a unique storage problem.

When it's idle, no one wants to see it. But when it's on, everyone wants a good view.

That's where this handsome TV cabinet project comes in. Designed to fit snugly in a corner, it keeps the TV neatly out of sight when not in use, and in a space that's easy to see from almost anywhere else in the room.

The project features clean lines and classic styling that conceal a 32-inch tall by 30-inch wide by 18-inch deep bay for the TV, as well as a removable shelf for a DVD player, a satellite or cable box, or a game console.
