OK, the link above is a drawing of what I want to make soon. The drawing is NOT to scale! There are also two real pictures of what I already made for the kids.
The reason I am showing the pictures of the kid's TV center is to show how much "plain" wood is exposed around the corners. For the kids, it's perfectly fine. But, for the living/family room, I want to make it nicer.
The difference between the drawing and the pictures is the drawing has doors enclosures. The front doors (sliding to hid the doors in sides) is to cover the TV, VCR, and stereo. The sides will cover VHS, DVD, and other little junks.
My question is would it be "too much" raised panels if I do raised panels for the corners (2 front, 2 back and four 45-degree). It would be eight of ~5" raised panels (see top view, last picture).
I could make the front wider and the 45-degree shorter? That way only 4 sides (2 front and 2 back) would be raised panels and the short would be small plain 45-degree strip.
I also did a sample of smooth round corner. The problem is how to put crown molding around it (on top)? With "straights", I could easily put dental crown molding on it.
Any suggestions? Pictures? Plans? Drawings?
