Here is a simple way to make your own DIY TV stand from wood. This project requires basic carpenter woodworking skills. You don’t have to be an expert. Having powered tools for woodworking will help with this project. From start to finish this project will take half a day or longer. The dimensions of the TV stand in total is 58″ Wide x 22″ Tall x 14″ Deep. The entire stand is made out of one 4×8 sheet of birch veneered plywood and a 1x4x8′ board for front trim. See the step by step procedure for making the DIY TV stand below…
Had lots of scrap wood that needed to be used up.
Had to purchase more wood besides the scrap to do the job right.
Made a Dado Joint 1/4″ deep to hold everything together using a router.
Made 4 joints on the top and bottom pieces of wood for the middle and sides to fit into.
Testing to make sure the wood fits snug into the routed Dado joint.
After routing the wood, the top, bottom, and middle slats were attached together with glue and nails.
Then the side slats were assembled onto the TV stand using wood glue and nails.
The front trim pieces were then cut and test fitted for perfect length.
Attached the front trim wood pieces using just wood glue.
Once completely assembled, the TV stand was stained with our choice of wood stain.
Finished DIY TV stand project. It is 58″ Wide x 22″ Tall x 14″ Deep. The entire TV stand is made out of a 4×8 sheet of birch veneered plywood and a 1x4x8′ board for the front trim.
