About This Project

Red Oak and Birch

This is a television stand/bookcase I built at the request of my wife. I used red oak plywood, red oak lumber, and the backing is 1/4" birch sheeting. It is put together with trim nails, wood glue, and countersunk wood screws. I used wood plugs to fill the screw holes. I marked it as intermediate due to the miter cuts on the trim.

Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used: 
I used 2 coats of Minwax Aged Oak gel stain applied with a brush. I wiped the stain down after 10-15 minutes with a cotton cloth. I used 3 coats of of Minwax fast drying polyurethane on the top and 2 coats elsewhere. The birch backing took only one coat of stain.
Estimated Cost: 
$150

I don't know about a sketch up. I will post the dimensions at some point along with the materials. I do many of my projects in my head and may draw a very rough sketch out.
