Help converting a buffet into an entertainment center
My wife bought an old buffet piece and we wants me to convert it into an entertainment center. All I really need to do is make tho two drawers into one piece that I can fold up and slide into the unit.
My thought was to take off the drawer fronts and fix them to each other to maintain the outward appearance and then somehow use a pair of cabinet hinges or something that I can attach to the behind/top end of the drawer face piece. Then need to make it possible to slid it into the unit so its out of the way and we can see the components when we want.
Anyone done something like this? How can I make it so the drawer front/panel will slide in?

That's an interesting method on the coffee table. Those look like cup hinges and should hold up fine. Either way you will have to make the doors inset. You could carefully cut the edges of the drawer fronts off, then apply them to the edge of the opening that needs to be covered, or just make some new pieces if you can. If you do the cutting, then be sure to LEAVE the fronts the size you need and make the cutoffs fit the other part. You will need all of the cutoff, so you can't afford to make two cuts. You'll lose too much wood.
