This was my first furniture project and I simply wanted to hide all of the cords for my TV. My husband and I opted out of the drawers since we wanted a big area to store all of the other items (DVDs, playstation, etc.). We also did not put a back on the table so the electronics stored inside could properly ventilate without overheating.

We bought all lumber from Lowe's and it totaled to $180 for the lumber, sand paper, wood conditioner, stain, and polyurethane finish.
