I just put the tv on this noon. 42” LCD, what did we before they came out? It’s red oak, dowel pins in the dividers. Cutting the compound angles upside down was the trick . Mistakes? You betcha!

This is a nice looking stand. I am with Matt. I don’t see any mistakes either. The construction and finish look pretty good to me.

Thanks for sharing.

Very nice, I’d have to have a few extra nooks for the DVD recorder, Tivo and everything else.

Gotta love those LCD HDTV’s, huh? Makes taking a photo of what’s on screen, SO nice.

Excellent stand. Good to see plenty of breathing room for the components down below.

Something for the TV was/is on my list, and I like this so I’m going to “borrow” some of the ideas in here.
“Cutting the compound angles upside down was the trick” – can you explain more?

My table saw is a right tilt. To cut the angle, I had to have the top facing down on the table. To cut it face up would have pinched the panel under the blade and between the fence and the blade. I believe it would have been a dangerous way to cut it. By cutting it upside down, the work piece was to the left of the blade, and the cutoff piece was free. I made the panels oversize. I cut oak strips to fit in the miter gauge slots and nailed them to the panels. I cut the sides first. Then the front bevel, and cut it down to final size along the back. The sides were the only cuts that required the runner strips. This was something new for me, too. I’ve usually made things square or rectangular. I hope I cleared that up for you.
