Talk About It Tuesday

I haven't seen the other ladies posts yet, so I don't know if there is going to be a theme this week. However, Lynn talked about her softball piggies... which made me think of watching sports... which led to plasma TVs... which of course resulted in today's talk about it topic: custom made plasma TV stands.

The nice thing about a custom TV stand is that you get to choose everything about it, from the height to the color to the hardware. Unlike when you visit a furniture store, what you see is NOT what you get. When you purchase custom furniture, you get exactly what you want.

The TV stand pictured is 55" wide with 2 sets of doors in a black on java prim finish. It features a component cubbie and a shelf behind each set of doors.

Here is what you need to know before you order your custom TV stand:

  • Height x Width x Depth of TV.

  • H x W x D of the largest component (usually the stereo receiver) and smallest component.

  • Maximum H x W x D of overall unit. (Measure your wall.)

  • Number of shelves and drawers needed.

  • Additional features needed. For example, a pull out shelf for your turntable.

  • Wood, glass,mesh or no doors?

  • If the unit will have doors, does it need a component cubbie?

Other things you will need to decide on:

  • Type of wood? Pine, Maple, Oak, Cherry, Tiger Maple, Exotic

  • Finish Type & Color (Some wood species, like Tiger Maple, need to be dyed. Others can be stained or painted.)

  • Hardware

Have fun shopping for your new TV and contact Shaka Studios when you are ready to design your custom TV stand!
