Built this entertainment stand for a 60” Flat Screen. It is built with timbers recovered from the former Sweet & Crafty Ice Cream in Mansfield MA. The building was erected 1900,torn down in 2015. I was able to salvage about 4000 BF timber. This is my first piece from the pile. The stand is 24” tall (table top) and 46” tall at the bracket, by 60” long X 24” wide. Each joint is mortis & tendon, glued/pegged. Finish is Linseed on the legs and hand buffed Butchers Wax on top & Shelf. Top & Shelf is Hard Rock Maple.

It’s wonderful, David! Those are some beefy timbers and the top/shelf are nice and beefy too. Beautiful project.
