Big Ol' TV Stand

Instructions for the Ridge Media Console Table were easy enough to understand after one read-through.

I changed up the front-drawer face to go along with other decor in room fun, satisfying project.

NOTE -- Measure your electronics. The drawer is supposed to hide all wires and electronics for a clean look, however, the plans give a 13" drawer space. The dvd/tuner I own is approx 14.5", therefore I have to store it on the bottom shelf. I guess it's time to upgrade to blu-ray.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost

wood, kreg screws, nails
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Finish Used
minwax stain redwood on the table tops, and then a turquoise chalk paint, 40/60 with water, on the body. After sadning the finishes down to reveal more grain, minwax wax finish was used to protect. I use a rag with black paint on it to apply the wax. It tends to darken the grains and pull out the awesome imperfections of the wood that I love staring at.
