The wife and kids bought me a TV for my birthday a couple of years back. It wouldn’t work in our existing entertainment center so it was parked on an old coffee table I had in the basement. This was supposed to be a temporary measure until I came up with something better. Well time passed and it just never got taken care of…then the “happy accident’. I am trying out a new wood supplier and had ordered some oak for a table top. He delivered it but as he went to unload, he notices he has pulled from the wrong stack and has walnut instead. He asks me if I am interested in it…at the same price. He barely got the offer out of his mouth when I had the wood unloaded and was handing him the cash. Was watching tv later that night pondering what to use it for…bingo, it was time to do something about the tv stand. The boards were 1 1/4 thick so they milled down to 1” nicely. Had to glue two pieces together for the leg pieces but think it turned out OK. The stand is 40” in length, 16” wide and 20” tall.
Did have to reorder the oak but he brought it a couple of days later and even threw in a couple of extra boards for the trouble. Think I have found a new lumber guy…
