We had put our big 32 "TV in storage and we wanted to get it out again. But we didn't have a TV stand to put it on. Solution? Knex!

The result is a really strong, 27 1/2" by 15" by 22 1/4" TV stand that (besides the TV of coarse) can hold; three speakers, one dvd player (If I had one), and one audio unit. As I said before, it's strong. Each shelf can hold up to 50 pounds (pics 10&11) with the top being able to hold up to 80 pounds before it starts to sag (pics 12-15). I even stood on it and I'm 150, and it still didn't break! That's because the pattern I used to build it (in my opinion) is the strongest way to build a knex structure. I also made surround sound speaker holders (pics 36-41).

Anyway, I took a lot of up close pictures for those of you who want to build it, or copy the pattern. Also, this is a temporary project. I plan on building a pallet TV stand as soon as possible because I want my Knex back }:-( So stay tuned for that.

If you like my project please vote for me. Thank you. Enjoy.

<p>(first pic) Oh yeah! By the way, is that windows media player (i.e. it's a windows PC hooked up to that display)?</p>
Really cool! You a Despicable Me fan?
<p>Thanks. I am. The first movie is the best. </p>
<p>Yes I agree. The seccond one was good, but the first was the BEST animated movie I have ever seen.</p>
<p>Really?!?! Despite all the other movies from Pixar? My fav is Monsters Inc. :-)</p>
<p>Yup. I have never been a huge fan of Pixar movies. My top three favorite animated movies would be (I sound REALLY, REALLY , REALLY immature for saying this): 1) Despicable Me, 2) Up, and 3) either Hoodwinked or Megamind...</p>
<p>Yeah, they are all pretty good except Hoodwinked and Megamind - I haven't seen them yet. I quite like the new Monsters University though.</p><p>You got some good taste! Do you like WALL-E by any chance? ;-)</p>
<p>Love Wall-E. Generally, Pixar does a pretty good job with they're movies. You have to see Megamind, It's one of the funniest annimated movies ever.</p>
<p>Yeah! WALL-E has a great plot, and yes I agree that Pixar does a good job :-). I will have to see Megamind for sure then!! :D</p>
<p>Enjoy Megamind :) By the way, have you seen The Lego Movie yet?</p>
<p>XD (I know this commnet was not adressed to me) No, but I want to see it really, really , really bad. Is it any good?</p>
<p>That's why I was asking, I haven't seen it yet. My brother and I are dying to see it.</p>
<p>it's good (I bet you've already seen it though...)</p>
<p>I saw it last night! It was hilarious! It kept me laughing through the whole movie :) The animation was pretty cool too. Warning! The theme song is incredibly catchy. You'll be singing it for days.</p>
<p>Yeah, by putting that movie out Lego practically admitted their small 90 pc $30 set could only build things from the intructions.</p>
<p>Pretty much.</p>
<p>♪♪ Everything is awesome...♪♪</p>
<p>Sounds good, I can't wait to see it!</p>
<p>I have not seen it yet, but I am going to next week :D I'll give my thought next week on it. :-)</p>

<p>Megamind is pretty great.</p>
<p>I assume you are too. :D XD</p>
<p>XD, LOVE that GIF.</p>
<p>Haha! Don't we all XD</p>
<p>Wow, that looks very sturdy.</p>
<p>It is.</p>
Hi knextreme I made a social network and I would like to share it with you. Right now I'm on a cell phone but when I get a chance to go on a computer I will send you a link along with the master password. Keep in mind that it only doesn't work with atat connections. Hope you like it!
<p>You have a cat?</p>
<p>I actually have 4.</p>
<p>What did you do to make them stop meowing for food at 1:00?</p><p>( ͡&deg; ͜ʖ ͡&deg;)</p>
<p>that wouldn't work for <em>our </em>tv because it's a<em> really </em>old one.</p><p>It's from like 1999 so it's like five feet thick!!!!!</p>
<p>Really?!?! Wow! lol</p>
<p>it's nice!</p>
<p>Haha, I have no doubt it isn't</p>
<p>Yah, we have an old one too. It's like a big cube.</p>
<p>I'm not alone!!!!</p>
Are you kidding me?!? That Soooo is awesome!! How long did that take you to make?
<p>Thanks! A couple months on and off.</p>
<p>wow! That might have taking me a couple years to build!! :):) your awesome!!!!!</p>
<p>Thanks! It wasn't that hard, just really boring.</p>
<p> But that's really cool!!</p>
I was hoping someone would build this at some point. Oh, and by the way, I have another idea for you that would also be very useful for people.
<p>Cool. What's your idea?</p>
Build a sort of kitchen cabinet setup to house videos and games in! I dunno if it's been done before or not, but that's my idea.
<p>Cool. I'll consider it.</p>
<p>Nice!! My K'nex Table (look on my page) can hold up to 386 pounds and probably more - I haven't tried, but that was way smaller.</p><p>You did an awesome job :-) Well done (this should get featured, hopefully)</p><p>I'll vote as soon as its accepted! ;-)</p>
<p>Thanks. Oh yah, I remember yours. I forgot how solid it was. Unique design.</p><p>It's too bad it didn't get featured :( Anyway, Thanks for the vote. I think it would be cool if instructables told you how many votes your project has received. </p>
