Build a modern TV stand
UNIQUE AND STYLISH
First, begin by tracing the outline of the TV stand onto the wall.
Screw the metallic C-Studs onto the wall.
Note: The necessary cable conduits and all the cabling have been installed beforehand.
Assemble structure as you go along and screw in the panels to strengthen the construction.
For the upper shelves, start with the vertical panels to guarantee a solid base for the horizontal shelve.
Once the structure is finished, band the edges. Here we have used 6 cm wide MDF slats.
An aluminum foot serves as a
solid support for the long horizontal shelf.
- We have also used plasterboard (6mm thick) for some of the panels.
- The structure is not screwed into the floor, as with this type of construction the TV stand will be sufficiently stable once finished.
Plug the holes with wood filler, sand then apply a finishing compound before painting.
The lower central box structure is created with the help of two long Kinook blocks and a short lenght of C-stud which have been screwed into the existing structure as shown on picture above.
A space between the wall and the shelves is left to allow cable management.
A LEDs strip has been installed along the fringes of the TV stand inside a plastic slat. The slat hides the LEDs and cables.
