Stereo stand build recommendations
Guys and gals , I need to make a new stand that’s low profile and wide ,that will be sitting below my flat screen tv.
I want my stereo components to sit inside ,and my centre channel speaker to sit on top .
I really like the robust minimalist look of this one I found in this pic,but I’m concerned about the top warping ,as my centre channel speaker is 69 pounds .
My version will be 2’ deep and 65” wide , and not as tall . I am going to wall mount my flat screen ,so it will not be resting on top of the stand, just the speaker .
Does this stand look like it is made from solid wood , and any suggestions how to pull this off?
If it is solid, I’m assuming you glue several sections together.
I want to stain it black if that changes anything .
If I was to purchase pine at Windsor Plywood , this project would probably cost a few thousand dollars . We have a mill near by ,but I’m not sure what they have available. A friend was there once and bought Fir, but after reading about Fir ,they don’t recommend it for staining .
I’m almost wondering if a guy would have to add a piece of angle iron inside the wood some how , as the long width looks prone to warping ?
I didn’t want to add center supports ,but it may come to it .
So I guess I’m wondering what type of wood would be cost effective and strong enough not to warp
I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
