This Tv stand has become one of my favorite pieces i’ve put together. A lot of planning went into this project. For over a year we had our tv on an Ikea coffee table. It was about time to replace it with a nice piece.

I designed the stand myself using Illustrator. The entire project cost about $100 is all. There are a few things that I would have done different a second time around, but as is it is exactly what we needed. My new Kreg Jig saved me from a lot of headache on this. I changed a few things from the plans because of some size issues. My DVD player would not fit in the section with three shelves. I would have made it a little longer than 38” from side to side.

Overall I am really pleased and it’s been serving its purpose well.

I like the sort of rustic look of this. The hinges go well and look really cool with the piece.

It’s interesting how that one section on the door didn’t take stain the same as the rest, but it adds to the look, I think. Great job!
