Tryde Media Hutch

Submitted by Anstar on Fri, 01/06/2012 - 13:28

My husband and I worked together to build this project. We built the bottom in November 2010, then built the top hutch in January 2012. The project itself was easy to understand, but holding everything together and getting it square took a bit of work. We do not have a Kreg Jig or clamps, either of which would have been very helpful. However, we were able to complete it using our own best efforts, and we are very pleased with the results.

3 coats with old brushes, lightly sanded with steel wool between applications. Next time, I'll use foam brushes. The conditioner was a great choice, I think it really improved coverage.

I regularly sit on the front of it when our living room gets too crowded. I'm sure I wouldn't do that with a store bought flat pack tv stand!
