Here is my latest project. My wife wanted a new TV stand to replace the old one that the TV would not fit in. I like the Mission style look, made from solid red oak. My wife is happy and that is what matters.

Looks about the style I thought of making to keep my 1yr old from climbing up. Looks really good

Nicely done. I made something similar a number of years ago but it needs to be replaced with better design and construction like your’s displays.

Hi Stanley
Nicely done. I love the design of the table! This is just what I have been looking for. I found plans many years ago for a mission style entertainment system with two media towers and a bridge shelf across the top. The media table, though, was not very nice so I didn’t end up making it. Your project has inspired me to build a similar unit now. One question, did you extend the slats on the side all the way down to the bottom or did you stop them at the top of the drawer section? I could see a way to make either of these options work.

The slats just go down to the top of the drawer section. For the bottom half of the sides is a panel section like the drawer fronts. Sorry I should have took a picture of the side.

Thanks for the comments.

Making the sides below the slats like the drawer fronts carries the theme around to the sides. Excellent idea! This is how I will build mine too. Thanks again for the inspiration.
