Monitor stand - A Basic Build [member edit]



In this video I’m back on the #BasicBuild series and making a super-simple monitor stand from coloured MDF with just a #tracksaw and a #chisel. Enjoy!

Basic build videos are just that - simply constructed projects from readily available materials using a minimal - and entry-level - toolset (list below) and with each build we add a tool - or two - that grows the scope of the work we can take on.

I used the Keith Brown Original Oil Wax finish - also available in clear and food safe versions here - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/1314398822/kb-oil-wax-wood-finish-triple-pack


I also used the Hand-i-Craft Carnauba wax, pick some up at Leo’s new store here - https://www.hand-i-craft.com/store-1-2


I used Finsa Fibracolour for this shelf, and thanks so much to FinsaUK for the larger than usual samples.

Super simple as you say Peter👍 excellent. Just one positive observation that the Peter who did this is the old Peter, recently with all you have going on it has been another more harassed Peter, welcome back pal😂👍meant very genuinely from someone who had followed you for a very long time👍

Simple but very effective Peter and adds yet more colour to the workshop which is always a bonus in most workshops.

Very handy stand if you are short on space and want to keep your Laptop underneath to save desk space.

I like it! Neat but not gaudy. My monitor stand is crude by comparison, but it carries my Drobo as well, not to mention my router (wi fi) not the thing for making grooves etc.

Thanks! Those Drobos could be weighty, depending on the drives! 👍
