Made this for my hubby to set his new big screen TV on. He told me what he wanted, I designed it using Sketchup and this is how it turned out.

WOW! Incredible job! Would you mind sharing the finishing instructions?

-- I love woodworking. Except sanding, gluing, cutting long stock, finishing, detail work, sawdust, the cost and loss of time. :)

You did a fine job on this, from the design, which is true to the Craftsman style, to the craftsmanship, which is very well done. Thanks for the post.
