This is my second project since shop class. It is an oak stand to hold a 50” plasma TV. It was my first utilizing dovetail joints that were used on the drawers. I recently added a Leigh Super 18 Jig to my shop.

That’s a very nice project. I just hope that some day I have half the talent you do. Beautiful wood. You did a great job trifern. There’s just something about oak. When you get a chance, try to post some more photos… maybe inside of the cabinets and those dovetail joints you mentioned.

Great looking stand! How did you make the doors? Rail and stile bits, and panel bits for the router?

Nice stand – man, you just have to show those dovetails off – too much work to hide from us :-))

Thanks. I used rail, stile and panel bits on my Frued router mounted to a router table.

Thanks Grumpy. I broke all the rules. I started with a rough sketch on grid paper and then built it on the fly. I would like to get some computer software sometime. I just get too impatient and start building.

Very beautiful furniture indeed. Sure beats buying the same thing for $400.00 and putting up with pressboard with oak veneer. A piece you can be proud of.
