My son requested that I consider making a TV stand for his new flat screen. However, he did want it to hold his very large cooking and art books and his components. One more thing that he wanted was a stained glass section with a light behind it for night purposes.

Here is the final product before I delivered it to his new home.

For some reason, he insisted that it be made from pine. I ended up mixing a dark brown paint with some black paint that I had. The top is a glazed with a sheet of 1/4 inch glass. The book shelves are 14 inches tall, as per his specifications. The stained glass was designed and created by myself using some left over pieces of glass from a project years ago. Behind the stained glass, I put LED lamps which produce minimal heat and last a long time. The switch for the lamp is directly under the stained glass. There are little shelves in the middle to hold his remote controls.

He says that he is very satisfied with it.

You would never find anything at a store to meet those requests. Love stuff that exactly fits specific needs or wants.

Talk about a requirements list! But the stained glass is nice, a touch of class.

Have your say...
