good one:) It's not that bad, is it?
Built this the other day after looking at the Wilkerson Furniture
M21 somewhere online. I told myself, "well that looks pretty easy"
Plus I was tired of the TV being mounted on the wall with the
swing arm. Anyhow, all it took was a bit of planning, a few
modifications, & putting one thing together, but looking
ahead three steps into the procedure at all times.
(the only thing I'd do differently is make the height
of the entire box about 7 or 8 inches shorter so the
fabric area is a bit less) I was basing proportions on that one
picture, and after I was done, I found out it was a 42" plasma. Mine is
a 32".
I will probably get better angle plates for the legs too.

So,
2 pcs of 1"x10"x42"(cheapest thing at lowes..white pine $8)
2 pcs of 1"x10"x32"(cheapest thing at lowes..white pine $8)
screws($4)
pc of plywood(already had)
2" cove molding(random customer in building supply store $5)
cheap fabric(fabric store $3)
3/8 square dowels(lowes $0.98x5)
four 8" angled leg dowels(already had)
cabot stain(already had)
[b]TOTAL: $33
So, instead of $3600 as you can see below, I saved $3567. LMAO!




Here it is in all it's blurriness...........

Ok, it's all put together with screws. So i
just took the base off, cut 7 inches off, redid the fabric,
and put it back together. Much nicer in person being shorter.

You know what else? You could think of this as the prototype and now make one out of teak or walnut plywood. With a some edge banding some sticks of hardwood & sheet of ply you would still be under $200. (well, maybe not for teak)
