JUST THE LEGS. CABINET IS IKEA

I moved in with my girlfriend, and she already had a whole entertainment center. I had this TV stand and didn't know what to do with it. It originally sat flat on the ground.

So I made 4 legs out of 1X4 red oak with blocks of 3X3 at the top where they attached to the bottom of the cabinet. Ripped down half the 1X4 so that when attached to the other at 90* the sides were the same width. then built a tapering jig and eyeballed a nice taper that stops about 3-4 inches from the top of the leg.

My first attempt at stain was a learning experience. I definitely made mistakes but learned a bit along the way. Finished with semi-gloss poly.
