TV Stand

Recommended Posts

That does look terrific! Great job. Mind telling us about how much it cost you and the process some?

 

What size is your TV?

Lovely! If you don't build such things for a living, you no doubt could.

 

 

I don't build TV stands but we do build custom cabinets (usually commercial). My dad owns a custom cabinet shop. Here is an example of the type of work we do (this is a Starbucks we did). Actually, a lot of our work is little more basic than that.

 

As far as the stand....I recessed the back 4 inches or so so I could keep all the cables behind it and still have the stand against the wall. The middle drawer has a hole in the back where I ran the controller charge cords. I plan on running the charge cord for the wireless headset in there as well, but I need to get another surge/power strip so it can reach.

 

The stand took about two weeks of me working in the evenings and a little on the weekends. I would say about 16 hours of labor and about $100 - $150 in materials. I could have paid the shop to do it (it would have cost me a little more) and had it done in about a day.

Thanks for the compliments.

To expand a little....I used a black laminate for all the black (the legs) and a combination of wood veneer and maple laminate for the shelves. Basically, I took sheets of 4x8 MDF (3/4" thick) and wrapped them in laminate or veneer. I cut all my parts from that. Once I had the parts cut to size, I used our CNC machine to notch out the shelves so I could have my back recessed in and drill the pilot holes for the legs. The hard part was screwing all the legs and shelves together. I screwed the bottom shelf into the largest legs and then the bottom legs into the bottom shelf. Then, I screwed the middle shelf to the top of the large legs. For the legs above that, I had to bore out about five or six inches with a 1/2" bit and then use a lag bolt with a washer to secure it to that middle shelf (not sure if that really makes sense). Lastly, I screwed the top two shelves together with the "spacer legs" in the middle and screwed all of that to the legs beneath. The top shelf I left unfinished until the very end, that allowed me to screw it down and then finish it to hide the screws.

 

The screen in 55". The overall size of the set is about 63". I wish I could take the side speakers off. The stand is 75" wide, 24" deep, and 24 1/2" tall. The holes are 20" wide with the top holes 7 1/2" tall and the bottom holes 10" tall.

Maybe one of these days.....

 

We would like to do that kind of stuff on a regular basis and we have talked about it, but I don't see us doing that any time soon. Although, we do it occasionally for people in this area but that allows us to deliver it and not worry about shipping.
