Hello everyone, here’s a plasma tv stand we made a few years ago, I wanted very little grain to show so we used popular and sanded ply. The finish was a bear to pull off…. used artist oil paints as a stain and tinted lacquer to really bring it together. It took the oil paint almost a month to completely dry ( who knew ) If we ever use it again, we need to allow for this or add a dryer or something…. any ideas on speeding up dry time? Again,thanks for looking.

Dang, that is nice! I just got a new TV and have been struggling with a stand for it. I may steal some of your ideas!

Stevinmarin, just don’t go and sell the plans on ebay.

Dmack, it’s a very nice looking hutch but does the sound get muffled by the doors or do you leave them open when in use?
