Thought I’d post a few pictures of my new TV Stand. It’s definitely more streamlined than my old ‘80s monster. Here's the final video installment.

I have been following this from the beginning. The final results are great. Looking forward to the next project.

Love it. Recommendation tho…you might want to build a little leg riser for your Wii. While they are designed to sit sideways like you have it…they have been known to over heat that way. Make some little legs so airflow can get underneath it.

@akbar56: Thanks for the tip…I didn’t know that. I was kind of suspicious though, since they seem to encourage you to set them vertically.

Looks great man. I do like the idea of the plumbers tape. Sersiously considering using it on some small projects as trim.
The paint job looks great, my wife is constantly repainting anything I paint. So I was really laughing at that post.

Very cool Steve, love the colors and placement of the two layer table, and the legs are awesome.

I think I saw some guy do this in a video blog. Oh yeah! it was you. Loved the blog and the finished product is looking really good. Well done, Steve.

looks pretty good. I like what you did with the legs…much better than the original sketch-up design. I also like the french cleat solution for mounting the TV.

I am working on a version of your stippled-top jewlery box right now. I have the sides done. They turned out pretty good…still sanding though.
