If anyone can help with these measurements, something just seems off, I'm
terrible at geometry, but can measure and cut just fine.
I'm wanting to build a corner cabinet for my tv and related equipment. The
design size is limited on one side to 34" because of a door jamb. The shape
I've come up with is 5 sided-essentially the same as a profile of a diamond
from a ring-not a pentagon. Measurements of 22" for the front (tv screen
edge), 12" each side, then 34" for each of the back sides. I've just cut
out graph paper, one square to one inch to fit these measurements. The TV
itself is box shaped, narrowing slightly towards the back. 25" across the
front screen edge, 19" deep, and 19" wide at the back. I've also cut the
graph paper to fit those measurements. The tv paper fits well inside the
cabinet paper, but it doesn't seem like it should. Given that the cabinet
paper front edge is only 22 squares (cut on the diagonal) and tv paper is
25 squares wide, how is this possible. Have I measured wrong, is it a
matter of perception, something else? I don't want to buy and cut wood if
this just isn't going to work.
