A buddy of mine, asked if we could build a piece to sit on top of the TV stand to raise the TV higher, for the fire station that he is captain at. So he had some basic measurements of what the guys wanted, and with that, we started “Playing.” This is pretty basic, but very strong, and made of sawmill oak. We used pocket hole screws, and dado’s and a couple coats of paint to match the stand that this will sit on top of. Had a good time with a long time friend, and the guys at the fire station were happy too.

Trust a fireman to want it black!

Looks great just the same

That will ensure the fire fairy looks after you both for at least the next 12 months !!

Good job Hoss.
ALWAYS a good idea to help out the guys who are going to come and put out the fire at your house ! ha ha.
It looks like a nicely made piece and I bet the boys down at the Fire Station appreciate it.
And, working in the shop with a long time pal is always a pleasure too.
Nice work.

nice, clean design. Have you ever tried ebonizing? Oak works real good, it’ll give you the near black finish, without covering the wood with paint. Great job (again) Hoss!

Yeah, for some reason firefighters like their tv’s up high. We like to recline the chairs way back. Having the tv up high only makes sense. Nice job.

Good build – spending time in the shop with a good friend AND making something to make the Fire Fighters’s lives more comfortable – don’t get much better than that :-)
