The sides of the stand are ply. The face frame is 1x2 oak & the bottom skirt is 1x3 oak that I cut down to 5/8" thick and is flush with the back of the side frame. This gives it a 1/8" recess. The rear sheet is 1/4" ply with a header stirp of 1x2. the header strip & top strip on the back, as well as the face frame are held together with pocket screws & glue. The purpose of the back is to keep the case square which it can do without going all the way to the top. I have a 1x2 running up the center of the back to provide support for the top. By leaving it open instead of cutting it out it was easier & gives me more flexability for placement of hoses & cords, etc. It also worked out that way because of the size of material I had on hand. I've built stands like this before & that opening really comes in handy. I will cutting a hole in the bottom corner for a power cord to pass through. The bottom is basically a shelf resting on another piece of ply attached to the sides. The photos of the bottom & end shot didn't turn out very well, so as soon as I get new ones taken, I'll post them.
Thanks for the compliments.
