Recently one of my nieces moved into her very first apartment. Not having much of anything I asked what she needed; this was the result.
A modern style stand for a flat panel TV. Constructed from one sheet of 3/4 Birch plywood using Dominoes. The only metal used was Kreg screws for the pocket holes in the corner blocks. It has a 1/8 birch ply back to enclose the two rectangular sections and will be finished in whatever manner she wants. It took 15 minutes to design it and two days to build it. Also, while I could have turned the feet myself I chose to purchase pre-turned feet to expedite the process they screw into tee-nuts in the bottom.
By the way, I’ll gladly share the SketchUp file with anyone that would like to have it.
It turns out she wanted it to be darker brown with a nice finish. The base coat (Brown Color) was General Finishes Milk Paint (2 coats) with the top coat being General Finishes High Performance Water Based Polyurethane. The milk paint was brushed on and the Poly was sprayed (4 Coats); which was a first for me as I have never used HVLP before this project.
