This oak tv stand was fashioned after one I saw in Handyman Magazine. I pretty much stuck to the original plan with the exception of the drawer fronts. They were flush mounted with the face frame and I wanted mine to have beveled edges. The cabinet carcass and top are made with 3/4 inch oak plywood and the face frame from solid oak stock. The drawer fronts I made from a stock of oak I reclaimed from an old barn in King, NC and was milled around 70 years ago. You can still see some of the old nail holes. I ended up with some pretty severe burn marks from the table saw when I beveled the drawer fronts and was not able to completely sand them out. I made the wine rack out of some lumber kickers that I’m fairly certain is locust. They showed up at Home Depot where I work under some trailers. I capped it off the end with a piece of walnut. The finish is minwax sedona red and two coats of arm-r-seal satin.
