I would build one... but i think it would be cheaper to just buy a used one.

To build a stand that looks as nice as a manufactured one is more expensive than buying a decent used one, due to the cost of the nice wood for the surround, and the cabinet doors. All the rest of the lumber & stain is cheap. What I like to do is buy decent manufactured stands, and reinforce them with a few cheap 2x4's.

If you're just looking for a stand that's functional, you can build a really sturdy stand for very little money.

What kind of stand do you want? Any particular wood or color of stain? Pressboard? Hardwood? I'll keep my eyes and ears open for you.
