This TV stand was built to resemble a chest of drawers. The upper two flaps fold down to access system components. The bottom space is a drawer used to store DVDs. I would have preferred building a chest with inset doors and perhaps a bit more interesting style, but this was built to match an existing chest of drawers and the woman for whom I was building it wanted overlay doors with maple trim – so that’s what she got. It is finished with General Finishes water-based stain over Charles Neil’s blotch control, top-coated with Target Coatings’ waterborne production lacquer, plus two coats of their waterborne conversion varnish for the tabletop. It’s made of cherry (mix of solid and furniture-grade ply) with maple banding over a milk-painted poplar plinth.
