    TV stand (kind of)

    Good day

    I never have any problems with my client...because, my client is my wife and she is also the designer.

    White Oak (Polish)... 3 separate "boxes" so we can move them around (and if they move....) or change the arrangement.

    Each box is 1 Meter (39-3/8") long...55 cm (21-5/8") high (including 2" legs) and 50 cm (19-11/16") deep.

    I used dowels because for me, it was the easiest, fastest and most accurate way (I'm doweling on the router table).

    The finish is stain and 5 layers of clear varnish.

    Nice to see you do something besides make amazing jigs and fixtures Niki!

    VERY well done, I'm sure the boss is happy with those!

    Thank you Stu

    Well, I had to justify the new Elektra Beckum (Metabo) table saw that she bought me because the other one could not cut the 25mm Oak....

    Thank you so much

    Yes, it's all solid Oak 25mm (1") thick...I did not see here the veneered plywood that is so popular in USA....here we have any wood pattern but on chipboard (Melamine).

    Very NICE, Niki. I like both the design AND the craftsmanship. I especially like the finish, as it has a nice gloss on the top without looking like plastic, and the fronts, drawers and doors have a more soft semigloss appearance.
