The Design Confidential Builders Showcase for the Copenhagen Media Stand

Tired of the Target 100$ entertainment centers – this one caught my eye.

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.

Estimated Cost 

~$140 – drawer pulls and sliders were biggest expense – even more so if you go with the slow close sliders…

Length of Time 

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.

Lumber Used 

Pine – pine beetle damaged for color

Pine project board with pine beetle damage cut up for drawer fronts.

Redwood for framing.

Finishing Technique 

Oil based polyeurathane.
