Wood TV Stands: Complete RTA Wood TV Stands Buying Guide 2014

Wood TV stands are available from several manufacturers and their furniture generally falls into 3 broad categories:

  1. Hand-built, custom-built, pre-assembled
  2. Mostly real wood ready-to-assemble
  3. Mostly particle board or MDB ready-to-assemble (for more information on particle board Click Here)

Wood TV Stands Categories

Hand-built, Custom-built, Pre-Assembled Wood TV Stands

These are the most costly TV stands as they use real wood, are custom-built to order, and buyers can usually choose from manyWood TV Stands Bell'O CW343 AV TV Stand Full View available finishes.  Hand-built TV Stands are often more attractive in both design and finish and they are more durable over time.  The disadvantages of hand-built furniture include cost of the furniture, shipping costs, and long lead-times for delivery due to construction schedules.

Mostly Real Wood Ready-To-Assemble

These types of TV stands lower costs by leaving assembly to the buyer, limiting the available finish choices, simplifying designs, and introducing some engineered wood and laminates into the construction.  They can be a nice compromise between mostly particle board ready-to-assemble TV stands and the more costly hand-built models.

Mostly Particle Board or MDF Ready-To-Assemble

TV Stands Made of Wood Bell'O WAVS341 Bent Wood AV Cabinet Full ViewParticle board is also known as engineered wood and is created using manufactured wood particles, adhesive, and compression.  Medium-Density Fiberboard (MDF) is also an engineered wood product that is stronger and much denser than particle board.  For more information on MDF Click Here.  The biggest advantage of this type of TV stand construction is by far the reduced cost.  In addition to material cost savings, manufacturers also reduce costs by producing the simplest of designs, limiting available finishes, and mass producing the pieces.

While the price is often right, the durability of engineered wood, particularly particle board may not last the test of time.  It needs to be used for the correct engineering purposes in order to maximize its strength.  When a piece of furniture, like a TV stand, is made completely from particle board, some pieces will eventually weaken from the stress.

If it’s not obvious by now, we are proponents of mostly real wood, ready-to-assemble TV stands which mix engineered wood with real wood in such a way as to maximize the performance of each while still reducing cost.  These types of TV stands also tend to have more interesting designs that are more likely to look good in your home without looking cheap or shoddy.

So the question is, which TV stand should you buy?  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so it would not be our place to suggest what you should like or to know what your budget looks like.  Rather than do that, we are going to suggest some brand names that we think are good choices and give you a look at many of their TV stands so that you can pick one that appeals to you and falls within your means.
