I've decided our HD Projection TV needs to be higher off the floor.
The set weighs 150lbs and the base is 50"x22". The stand will be
51"x23"x17". Vertical supports on the ends and two in the "middle",
18" from each end.
The verticals will have 3/4" hardwood on the top and bottom ends (which
go into rabbits on top and base) for securing TeeNuts. 1/4-20 screws
through the top and base into the verticals.
I hope this shows up. :o)

The unit will be finished with black laminate, so the raw wood's
apprearance is immaterial.
I'm not a big fan of MDF.
Oak and birch ply are going "overboard"
For the small difference in price and weight, I feel 3/4" is better then
I'm considering 3/4" BC.
I'd appreciate your thoughts/comments. Did I miss something? And other
BC is not going to provide you with a consistent enough surface. Just use
IMO this is "non-heirloom" furniture for a couple of reasons:
1) black laminate.
2) The sole purpose of the piece is to support an appliance which will
likely be replaced inside of a decade with something a different size and
MDF probably is the right choice for this application.

I bought a sheet of that just a few days ago. Just making a storage box. Was
to be assembled with pocket screws. Wouldn't hold a screw. The vaneer was so
thin that sanding with 180 grit went through it. Low price for a reason.
