This is my first big project. We bought a big screen TV last fall and we needed a new stand for it. My wife found one that she liked at a furniture store, but I told her I could build one. I have no experience woodworking, so she just laughed at me and told me I could try to build one. So I bought a table saw and router and went to work. I used a set of plans from www.plansnows.com, but modified them to fit my TV. This project included many firsts for me, and I learned a lot in the process. The TV stand is made from cherry plywood and hardwood, and is finished with one coat of boiled linseed oil and then 4 coats of a satin wipe on poly. I am pretty happy with the finished project, but more importantly my wife is happy. Any comments or suggestions on what I should have done differently are appreciated. Thanks for looking.
