My parents have gotten a new place (Restoring a church into a home) and need a new TV stand that fits the feel of the place.
I am building a pretty basic stand with 2 drawers, main shelf for the TV and a secondary shelf for electronics. The inside portion of the stand is build out of 5/8" birch ply. and the outer portion is built out of 1″×10″ (Yes its actually 1″×10″) Rough hewn pine. I cut down and laminated the outer portion to give me a total depth of 18.5" so the overall measurements will be 60″ × 18.5″ × 22″.
The outer portion (Top and sides) will be lightly sanded and given several coats of poly. Maybe a little stain, havent decided yet. The internal portion will be painted white.
-- If you dont like what you can buy, build it.
