Haven’t posted a project in a while for some reason. This idea came about due to the purchase of a new center speaker which didn’t fit into my entertainment center. Instead of building a new entertainment center I decided to build this stand which also serves as a plant stand. My local lumber mill says the wood is Ullie??? – at least that’s what’s printed on my receipt. I’m not sure where its from…..The wood is a bit soft for my liking, but should serve its purpose well. All joints are M&T including my first wedged tenons with black walnut wedges. Its finished with 3 coats of Bulls Eye Shellac, 3 coats of tung oil mixture (1/3 pure tung oil, 1/3 poly and 1/3 thinner) followed by 2 coats of poly and lastly Miniwax paste wax.

Thanks for looking. All comments and feedback are much appreciated!

Nice solid design, I like the curve you put into the legs, gives it that finished look.

I also like the curve you put on the legs, nice piece to show-off whatever you put on it.

Love the design but the center speaker should be directly above or below the screen. I know that it is not always practical to have the perfect setup but the center is probably the most important when it comes to placement. Just a thought but if you have no complaints then that’s great.
