I made this TV stand to replace another 2X4 stand. This one is easier on the eyes.

The drawer sides are the actual sides of the stand; a first for me.

Cherry and tiger maple drawer fronts. Wipe on “Tung Oil Finish”

You can watch me build this in three separate videos:
part 1 : carcass
part 2 : drawers and shelf
part 3 : top and drawer pulls

Thanks for looking

It makes a very attractive TV stand. Congratulations.

That looks fantastic! I really like the angle on the legs but still with some “beef” to them.

I’m digging this. My mom has a birthday coming up and has been asking for a tv stand, but I have had difficulty finding a design I like. I may be borrowing from you! Thanks for the post!

Very nice looking! What Gary said. Funny thing is, i’m about done with two end tables and the legs are shaped just like these.

LOVE the drawers also being the sides, that’s a great idea! Thanks for the post, and nice build!

That looks really nice. I’m guessing you made it big enough for your next TV.
