This is what I bought,very sturdy and stylish imo. I did have to add on to the metal tv mount to move it up to make room for my center.Most entertainment stands look like a dresser that you would put in a bedroom,just not my style. Im with you on building your own. Now that I have some woodwork tools I would definitely build my own.Keep us updated if you decide to go homebrew.
