This is our first build ever, not what I would suggest for a first project, but it came out wonderfully! This was a piece built specifically for a friend of mine who had just cancelled an order for a console just like this because the company she was buying it from wanted to charge her an arm and a leg for shipping.
I had been spending a lot of time on Ana's site and started to use Sketch-up to build some pieces that I needed here for us. I told her, Heck, I could build that.. and so it began. :-)
This is made of plywood and is mostly pine, with a couple of exceptions. As soon as Ana has her plan submission thing going right, I will post plans to build this console for yourselves! :-)
I listed this as intermediate because I think you would need to have at least a decent knowledge base as well as specific tools such as; Kreg Jig, circular saw or table saw, power sander and nail gun. I also listed it as 20 or more hours, because that's what it took us to build. You might not take that long, but this was our first build with NO real experience. :-)
It turned out rather nice.
Thanks for the complement! I keep meaning to post the plans but I've been so busy on our new project, I haven't had time to post it yet.
Your console looks great! And further more, it is exactly what I have been looking for, is there any way you could post the plans, please? Pretty please? Thanks! Hubby and I are moving in a month or 2 and I would like to have this piece for when we set up the house again. Thanks in advance for your time!
Thanks for commenting on my project! I have indeed posted the plans for this project on Ana's website. You can view the plans by going to this link: http://ana-white.com/2011/03/rustic-media-console-0
Thanks for your complement and your interest!
