I made a TV stand for my wife for the holidays out of cherry. The top is a 8/4 cherry slab. The shelf is a 4/4 piece with lots of character. I left the saw mill marks on the legs at my wife’s request to make it look more rustic. Finished it in clear polyurethane. I show the before and after polyurethane pics to show how it drastically brings out the character.

I had cut the cherry 30 years ago when I was right out of high school. I had a Cherry crotch that was only 3.5 feet long that I hoped would make some nice figured “lumber”. A gentleman I worked for had a portable sawmill and he cut it up while sawing a few logs for my Dad. Thank goodness he encouraged me to cut a few 8/4 or I would have cut everything 4/4. The slab makes a nice top.

I like the look of this Rustic TV stand Goed
Its given me an idea for my Bunya pine which was being relegated to the scrap bin

Although I don’t think I would trust putting my TV on it!
