Media Console/TV Stand

My wife and I designed this media console from scratch to replace one that we bought when we got married 10 years ago. Our old TV stand had long been at it's capacity (preventing me from getting a bigger TV) and my wife never liked how the backless stand exposed all the cords and wires of our electronics. We built this console to have a much bigger capacity (overall dimensions are 64Wx20Dx33H) and to provide us with some nice storage areas for electronics and dvds (while neatly concealing all the cords). The piece has a kind-of "barn-door" concept to it in that the front console doors can slide together (both in the middle) or apart (one on each side) for accessing different storage areas or even to create a slightly different look. We plan to finish it with a dark stain and gloss top coat eventually, but for right now we are enjoying the natural beauty of it's sturdy all-wood construction. I am happy with how this project turned out--it really makes quite a statement in our living room...not to mention the fact that it has allowed me to significantly upgrade my TV :-)

  • Awesome teamwork! This build turned out beautifully. Very nice storage spaces, and the barn doors really add a nice touch.
