This lighted stand was kinda thrown together from left over scraps for a Christmas gift. This is one of the most rewarding things about woodworking as a hobby. Sometimes (under pressure) things just seem to work out to be something cool!
I have to thank my wife for helping me with the faux stained glass! My sister-in-law won’t put any knick knacks on it cause she says it covers up the ligthed shelves. Made from walnut and maple. Finished with tung oil. Hide the power cord in one of the feet and legs. Sacrificed a Christmas light string for the four shelves. Thanks for looking!

Very nicely done. How did you attach the shelf corners to the legs? I also like the shape of the legs.
