A TV stand I just built for the bedroom. The design worked well enough for the living room so I widened it up a bit to have more useful shelves for random storage. Should last a long time.

Birch, soft maple, hickory.

41” Wide
18” Deep
24” High

Of course, ther is never enough storage space available.

18” deep sounds like a very useful size to me , especially for storing other components on the shelves below : )

Birch, soft maple, hickory. Did you stain one of them dark ?
I was assuming the dark one was Walnut before reading your post.

18” is working out perfect. It holds all of the electric odds and ends and has plenty of room to set other randomness on.
The dark wood is the soft maple. I purchased it roughsawn from a custom sliding glass door company in the area and was surprised to find out that it was indeed maple…some of the boards have a really beautiful figure.

I’ll be darned…did they say if it was “toasted Maple” ?? They’re treating a lot of wood species that way now.
I worked for a cabinet shop , and they had Toasted Birch there.

After doing a little research, it must be the “roasted maple” or “toasted maple”. A fresh cut through it does smell pretty nice.
