Made this at some friends’ request to hold their old big screen rear projection TV (which is being demoted to their game room). It’s made out of reclaimed 2×4s and pieces of four old, brittle, splintery, warped oak pallets. What I’m most proud of is that I managed some how to cut everything with hand-held power tools (my table saw is still in storage pending a suitable location to put it at my house), and it came out rock solid and square and doesn’t rock even a little. They were pleased with it, and I made $300 cash two days before Christmas…so, of course, my kids were pleased with it too.

The finish is polyurethane. I brushed on a couple coats, then sanded it a little, and finished it off with a couple of thinned out wipe-on coats.

Have your say...
