TV Stand Made From Rought Lumber Found at Construction Site

Got some rough pine lumber from a construction site. Did a light sand just enough to have it a bit clean, but not enough to remove the saw marks and character. Used my radial arm saw to put 1" grooves into the sided for the mid shelf. Used a Kreg Jig to mount the sides to the top. Knocked the mid shelf in with a hammer. Not I have somewhere to put my tv. Also worked as a bench in my garage for a bit.
