thought u guys might like to see what can be done with a little time and effort. Keep in mind I have never done any wood working prior to this project.

Looks great! What type of wood / stain combo did you end up using? Also, do you have any pictures of inside the stand (structural features)?

Looks really good, well done! I have no woodworking experience to speak of but I'm getting more confident in trying this some day.
