I just completed this TV stand for my older brother who just moved into his new industrial style apartment. It is a renovated warehouse with cool brick on two walls. It is made of pallets, 2×4s, 1×6, and construction grade 1×6. I used a Minwax weather grey to stain the top and the shelves. I made the track and door hardware as well and it turned out a lot better than I thought. I used wheels from pullys and bent the steel around them for them to slide on the track. The doors are just attached with bolts. It is all 3/16 in steel painted in black. Thanks for looking!

Very cool. I may have to show this to my fiance.

Did you have to heat the steel for bending?

Yes I had to use a torch. Went to my high schools metal shop and they helped me out with it so that was a big plus.
