Here is a TV stand I made my girl friend !!!, it is made of red oak plywood with a solid wood with a 5/4 thick top.
The inside of the cabinet was pre-finished (painted and stained) before assembly which made things easier overall.
I had to custom match the stain to her existing end tables and the color came out really close to the the table color she wanted. I finished the piece with 5 thin coats of Crystalac and then hand rubbed it out and then waxed it. Overall it came out looking ok even thou I did not like working with a wiping stain, it was hard to blend the color evenly. Any comments would be nice !!! Have a great day.

Nice TV stand Like the proportions and finish looks good. Not real sure about the white interior and the prefinished shelf though. Keep up the good work

Slick finish, like glass. Red oak is a classic, and very pretty wood. It’s my favorite wood to default on for a major, since I can get it here for around 2/bf.

Looks great, and I especially like the trim work you did. Keep it up. :)
