This is a TV stand that was built for some friends of mine. It was completed in April 2010. Of course, when you get a new TV you have to get a new TV stand. They looked through some of my books and found a layout that they liked and I turned it into a corner unit. What I like about the corner unit is it looks very thin, but has enough room for DVD, VCR, and other components.
The finish is my version on Cappuccino. I dye the wood using a universal brown dye (2 parts), universal red dye(1 part) and Lacquer Thinner (140 parts). Yes I said 140 parts. The dye is very strong and is thinned way down. The dye is expensive so that is a good thing. Also it flashes off (dries) in seconds. I then stain it with Ivory stain from Minwax.
The raised panel doors hide CD’s and DVD’s, while leaving the center open for the components.
