I built this TV stand to replace an older piece of furniture. It’s made of cherry and has been finished with MinWax Walnut stain along with PolyCrylic.

There’s enough room in the drawers to hold about 96 DVDs and the shelf gives plenty of space for the different components we have hooked. The top of the stand is removable and allows speaker wires to be routed under surface to keep everything nice and tidy.

I have the plans for this project on my website for free along with a video that highlights the assembly.

I hope you guys and gals like it as much as I do. Nothing beats purpose built furniture!

really nice piece – well done
i like the term “purpose built furniture” too
I’ve been trying to tell people that it’s best to get a piece made for the intended spot instead of jamming in something because it available or easy. I’ll use this term from now on

Well built stand. Nice features on it also. I will agree, building something that fits and for a purpose is better than buying something and hoping it fits and works out.
