First, two planks of 40-inch 2-by-12 lumber lengthwise should be stood on a 2 inch edge; they have to be pressed together. 5 inches from each end should be measured and a line across the exposed 2-inch edge of each plank should be marked. 2 more similar marks evenly spaced between the first two should be made.
A half-inch-deep and -wide hole should be drilled that centered at every mark that have been created on the two inch edge on wood’s both planks. A half inch thick by one inch long dowel peg should be dipped in glue and it should be added into the holes on 1 wood’s piece.
You have to repeat with another 2 two by twelve planks of 40 inches, as good as 6 planks of two by twelve 30 inch lumber.
Two pieces of 40-inch-long 2-by-24 inch lumber (the TV stand sides) should be laid next to 1 another on the work table.
2 inches in from the ends of the side planks should be measured and a straight line across both side pieces should be created. Another line in the middle of the first two should also be made.
The thickness of the 3 planks of 24 by 30 inch lumber should be measured that are the shelves and tops of the stand. A router bit of the exact thickness of the lumber should be attached onto the router.
A dado (groove) should be cut, the router can be used for this that is a quarter-inch deep and goes across the side plank on the line marked. It should be repeated on every marked line and on the second side plank.
The side planks and the top and shelf planks should be sanded, and then one of the side planks should be laid on the work surfaces with the dadoes facing up.
A thin line of glue should be applied to the dado grooves.
The stand should be put together safely with 6 two inch wood screws driven through the side panels into each end of the shelves and the top panel; countersink them slightly.
