TV Stands:

 

The modular TV stand on the right is made of hardwood, solid and plywoods, and a dark stain. Will hold TV up to 54 inches and has lots of space for components and accessories with attractive panel doors and pewter handles.

 

This stand is made of solid pine and plywood with a clear finish and has lots of storage space and shelves with cabinet at the bottom

I like using Pine however because it does have a very distinctive look with grains and knots adding to the look and feel of wood. Depending on what your building and what it's used for, pine is a good choice especially if it's your first projects. It's much easier to cut, sand and router.
