Mom's TV Stand

My brother and I bought mom a new TV. Her old one was outdated by at least a decade!

It fits the entertainment center easily enough, but sits too low. Someone raised it up by putting some books underneath it. Encyclopedias from way back!

So, I decided to build her a stand/riser or whatever you want to call it. The TV will sit 8 inches above the shelf it is on. That should work out perfect.

Sorry for the krummy indoor pic. The flash wasn't turned on. Durn photographer!

Simple, but effective - nice job, son!

Either lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Looks good and the candy bowl can still fit under the new shelf.

Encyclopedia Britannica??? I remember in the mid 60's when the salesman used to come around selling them door to door. Yup, my parents bought a set 'cause my older sister and I were in high school.
