Wife picked this plan for our TV stand for our new TV. Took 2 weekends to make and total cost was ~ $100.

Followed the build instruction from this website except for the "X" on both sides. I do not own a miter saw to cut all the differrent angles. Hence I cut the 60 degree angles using circular saw and speed square and put the x togetter by creating dados 3/4" deep on the center of both the 2x2 member of the X using a router.


For stains, we used Minwas Expresso for the bottom and the top we used Golden Pecan. 2 coats of stain folloed by 2 coats of high gloss polyurethane.
