I had a friend who liked theTV center I made for my daughter, so he had asked me to build one for him. This one is painted verses stained, with open areas on the ends to house his stereo speakers. He was very happy.

This is the 2nd one of yours that I really like. Can you give me an idea on the type of glass and what kind of price I can expect to pay to have the glass done. Where do you get the spindles as well? I’m really thinking of using your style to build one of the beauty’s. Did you come up with the plans or see them some where? What kind of dimensions are these. Thx in advance for any help you can provide me.

Very elegant design, and I liked your solution with the glass superstructure. An altogether stylish piece that looks very well made.

Thanks guys,
This is my own design. I don’t know where it came from because I have never designed much of anything. I was just sitting, thinking with some scratch paper and it came to me. So I built it.

The total unit is 68 1/2” long by 19 1/2 deep. The drawer openings are 10” and the center door section opening is 24”. The smoked tempered glass top is 48” long by 18” deep and 3/8 thick. It cost about $150. The feet and pedistals used to hold the glass were purchased from Hafele for about $10 each. They are basically screw-in feet turned up side down to match the bottom feet. I used 3/4 domestic birch plywood with hard maple edgebanding for the top and bottom sections. I also used very good drawer glides. The total cost of materials came to $600, give or take $50. The paint used in the center section is green satin Sherwin Williams. The top and bottom (two 3/4 ” plywood glued) is covered with 3 coats of minwax black stain and poly mix. I also shot a coat of clear satin poly on the top and bottom. Please let me know if i can be of further help.

Thank-you for taking the time to give us the helpful information on your project. If there is, one area I have been concentrating on in woodworking its also designing things myself. I used Goggle Sketch-up to design my outdoor kitchen from scratch and Blondie and I built it ourselves. We were very happy on how it came out.

You have given me some great ideas with your project and look Fwd to attacking this.
