In laws (in their 80's) are redoing their family room. New carpet and such - and bought a 65 inch flat screen TV. Now they can see the picture, and even some of the print on the screen. MIL called and said they need a stand now. OK, I'll stop at Walmart and pick one up for you. About time for us to make a trip up to farm country anyway. Nay Nay. Don't want any of that plastic China stuff. Got to be wood, preferably light oak. OK, I got the hint. You want me to make you one. "If it's not too much trouble." Of course I will. After all, you gave me your daughter 40 years ago, and never asked for her back.
Dug into my 5/4 x 12 x 48 oak stash - made a few cuts, couple of glue ups, and we have a new use for the CNCRP table.
Started putting the pieces together upside down working from the top up. Sorry purists, but that Kreg pocket hole gizmo is the cat's banana.
Had to use the CNC for a "little" design on the ends. I mean, since i was using it's table.
Anyway, it went together pretty well. Only needed the hammer a couple times.
No stain. Just 5 coats of semi gloss poly.
