I had blue cut birch plywood for me so I could get it home in my car. I sanded it really well, using several grades of sandpaper, I stained it with kona colored stain and put it together very easily. The only trouble I had was when my daughter and I brought it from the garage into the house because it's big, awkward and heavy. Thanks to TDC for posting these plans. Get building...you won't be sorry.
$120.00 for screws, wood and stain.
15-20 hours? I'm not sure, I work on stuff when I can...and I'm slow and my garage is very disorganized which slows me down even more.
birch plywood - 2 sheets
kona stain - it's really dark - love it
This is the Copenhagen Media Stand. I didnt like the view showing all the sandwiched layers from the end and the front so I framed the whole thing in Redwood. I also used pine that had pine beetle discoloration. Got lucky and spotted some pre-made panels with pine beetle damage - someone at the plant used their head and alternated the colored strips with normal strips when they built them. For the top I joined several strips to meet the altered dimensions I used - a few inches shorter than the plans.
~$140 - drawer pulls and sliders were biggest expense - even more so if you go with the slow close sliders...
Took me a few months but only because we had a baby mid build. Probably only 5 or 6 days of real build time - with a bit of a learning curve for the drawer slider installation.
