As some of you may know, I've been keeping an eye out for the perfect stand for my Samsung DLP that would match my Beech Axioms. I had pretty much determined that I would end up building something, when I happened to have seen this tonight at Target for $130:



If the 53" will fit on my wall OK, I'm likely going to go back and double check whether or not the Maple finish is an exact match for the Beech Axioms (but it sure looked to be a good match). The "silvery" trim would match the Samsungs' grayish/silver portion and the width, height and depth are very suitable. For what it's worth, they have matching "audio towers" available, as well as a slightly less-wide "TV Stand"...(this one's called an Entertainment Center).

Yes, I know that my search is of more interest to me than others in general, but considering the Beech finish seems to be pretty popular, I thought I'd pass this possible match along in case others are ISO matching furniture for their Beech Axioms!

Dude i'm glad you did, what is the height? I have the hlp5063, I would be a little worried that it's a bit tall, hard to tell from a pic.

Guys, if that ends up being a tad too tall, you might consider removing the legs and putting some teflon "magic sliders" on the bottom. Based on what I have at home, 6 of the 2" or 3" size (each corner & t down the center) would work pretty well. VERY easy to move the unit around to work behind it.

Also, thionk about getting a saw involved on the back and make the holes/openings big enough to get your hands in there to work with the wiring.

For both of these suggestions, I speak from happy experience.

I thought the same thing with the legs. They're about 3" tall. The unit is 24" tall, and I really wanted my Samsung on something more like 18", but I could barely buy the wood for $130, and I really have other things to do with my time, as much as I love woodworking!

Did I just win the run-on-sentence award for this month?

It's only 24 and 1/2 inches tall. I don't think that will be too tall. I have a 43" Sammy DLP on a stand that is 26" tall. It's fine.

be careful Mark....if you read the buyers reviews, it says the feet on those units is plastic.

I read that too.... they didn't look like plastic on the display unit...(?)

It's rated for TVs to 240lbs (I think the ~60lb Samsung would do OK either way) but I really think I would ditch the feet to bring the hight down anyway. I like Ray's idea of the Teflon doohickeys...

Looks nice Mark I am also looking for a new stand to match my new Beech M60s. I have a Mitsubishi 52" DLP that I would like to find a stand for but this stand looks like it has nowhere to put the center channel.
