I am a carpenter by trade and a good friend of mine lays hardwood floors, well he recently came across several extra boxes of tiger wood, and I figured let's build a stand so here we go!

The legs are all pieces of tiger wood beveled and glued together, nothing inside, and its all 100% tiger wood hardwood flooring, even made my own trim and she's really coming together nicely now
