As we all know the digital revolution is upon us. So as with the switch, Grandma got a new TV. She used to have the console style. She had this nice sofa table to set is on, but a place to set the vcr/dvd player and store her videos was now lacking. So when I was home over memorial day, we drew this up.

All oak, 3/4 ply and solid facing, full extension drawer slides. The bottom drawers have a divider for 2 rows of dvds. The table was purchased from Target. I needed a bag to hyperventilate for a second when I found out Grandma did that, but then realized I live 400 miles away and can’t always make anything. And I sure as heck would not have built the table for $89. (Damn cheap manufactured crap anyway) But that is a whole other issue.

The toughest challenge was getting a close stain via mail and photos. Turned out pretty good. Relatives give it the thumbs up too.
