Tansu-style TV Stand

I built a custom Tansu-style TV stand for my Pioneer Kuro plasma and

PMC LB1 center channel speaker. The speaker is so large I had almost

no choice but to make a custom stand. I also used this as an opportunity to teach myself some woodworking skills.

 

This is not a real Tansu, and I'm sure a real Tansu creator would

cringe at the design and (lack of) craftsmanship. Up close, you can

see a ton of mistakes I made (poor cuts, plywood tear-out, glue

squeeze-out, etc), but at the casual TV viewing distance, I can live

with it. For now.

 

The whole stand is made from a single sheet of cheap birch plywood,

the "macaroni and cheese of woodworking." It's finished with four

coats of Tung Oil, but the birch isn't that pretty, so I'll likely

make it darker at some point.
