General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.

Step 1

Note that this is a very big, long project, and you will need a long flat surface to work on. If you are working on a floor, check to make sure the floor is level.

Start by building the main storage box for the media bridge. Remember to measure your media center and make sure these dimensions fit before you begin cutting. I recommend putting the bridge together with 3/4″ pocket holes and 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws but you can also nail and glue or use countersunk screws or your favorite type of joinery.

Step 2

Next, add the shelves. These can be added with pocket holes or shelf pin holes.

Step 3

The back is too long for a single piece of plywood so you will need to splice two pieces. Do this on a joint. Square up your project as you add the back.

Step 4

Add the remaining plywood piece.

Step 5

Next, build your face frame first with 3/4″ pocket holes and 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws. Attach with glue and nails to face of the bridge.

Step 6

To keep the consistency of the bottom console look, you can add doors up top too.

Finishing Instructions

Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
