Birks Place is on the internet! Custom made stands for home, office, and anywhere a custom stand is desired. Made to your specifications, for your TV, stereo, computer monitor, printer, laptop, gear, collectibles, and more. Many possibiities. Get the perfect size and height, and a great looking stand!

Made of Northwest Alder, Poplar, and Baltic Birch hard woods, a feature found in higher quality furniture. Get the look of real wood. This is an upgrade from cheaper stands made of fiberboard, particle board, low grade plastic, thin metal, soft pine/cedar woods, and other materials. These stands provide a healthier alternative to MDF and other composite materials with offgassing and toxicity issues.

Stands have a clean modern look. Joinery of the top and sides are concealed, no screw or nail holes. Cheaper stands use only glue, short screws, or nails to assemble joints that will break apart after a time. These stands use mortise and tenon style joinery to make strong permanent joints, a feature found in higher quality furniture. The result is furniture that lasts. Joinery is sturdy, no need for a back panel or similar reinforcement. Joints will not wobble like what commonly occurs with cheaper stands. Joints will not bust apart like what commonly occurs with MDF, particle board, and low grade plastic. The hard wood top will not significantly bow under weight like what commonly occurs with cheaper stands. Wood material will not break or shatter when stressed like occurs with glass stands.

The finish is a multiple step process using high quality professional coatings, not plastic laminate, house paint, or other low budget coating. The resulting look is nice, not cheap. A range of finish options are offered to acccomodate budget, needs, and desires, from low-cost utilitarian to approaching the look of higher end furniture. With the optional smooth finish, special treatment is done to hide the wood grain and smooth the surface.

Stands are shipped completely assembled and ready to use, saving you time and labor by eliminating the assembly hassle that cheaper stands require.

Stands can handle weight up to 40 - 240 lbs or more depending on the material thickness and stand size.

Price is for one basic stand. For details about the basic stand, see the Customizing section below.

Made in the USA.

ABOUT CUSTOM MADE

Custom made is a limited production item, not a mass produced product. Cost is generally higher because of the lack of mass production and optimized distribution. Ordering custom made is like hiring a local contractor to do work for you, such as an artisan, craftsman, or tradesman. It can take several or more hours of skilled labor over several days to make a custom item to your specifications. Shipping carriers do not discount much for small volume shipping. Cost is not being subsidized by foreign governments like is occurring with many imported products.

What makes custom made better? Price is not the only measure of value, otherwise everyone would simply buy the cheapest product available. With custom made you have the value of the custom size, custom features, healthier materials, and quality workmanship. Having the right size item for your needs without compromise is peace of mind. In a work environment, custom made can help increase your productivity. With custom made, you can get something that is unique and cannot be bought as a mass produced item.

 

ABOUT BIRKS PLACE

Birks Place is a brand of custom made furniture and woodworking, accommodating a range of budgets and needs, from low-cost utilitarian to approaching the look of higher end furniture.

HOW TO ORDER

This listing is divided into sections. It is recommended that you first do an overview of the entire listing, then review the About Custom Made, How To Order, Shipping, and Payment sections, then review the Customizing, Ordering Tips, and How To Estimate Cost sections, then go back and review relevant sections when drafting an order. If you are only interested in a basic stand with a custom size and no other customizations, see the Height, Front, and Side sections.

This is a custom made, made to order item. To order, please send email containing the stand model, quantity, stand dimensions, and other details, to the following email address:

You can use the order template below and insert the stand dimensions and other details into the '()' placeholders.

Front: () inches
Side: () inches
Height: () inches

There is an ordering tips section in the listing below that can assist you in determiningthe stand size.

The stand dimensions and other details you provide will indicate what customizations have been ordered. If weight handling is a concern, please include the weight amount that will be placed on the stand and the order will be checked to see whether the ordered material thickness will be sufficient.

Please double-check your order to make sure the stand size, finish quality, and other ordered customizations are what you intend to order.

Follow up will be done to finalize the order and arrange for payment. Once payment has been completed your order will be added to the next production batch.

The stand front, side, and height are outside dimensions. To determine the inside dimensions, subtract the material thickness as appropriate. The front dimension is the side-to-side dimension (across the stand front). The side dimension is the front-to-back dimension (along the stand side). The middle shelf height is measured to the top of the shelf.

 

ORDERING TIPS

  • Order dimensions are outside dimensions. Make sure that the stand dimensions can accommodate desired inside dimensions, the top and side material thickness, the thickness of ordered panels, and the up to 1/8 inch manufacturing tolerance.
  • Provide at least 1/4 or 1/2 inch clearance around top and sides of objects placed under the stand. You may want to add more clearance depending on your needs and the look you are going for.
  • If the stand is for a TV, make sure the stand top is at least 1 inch larger than the TV base.
  • Make sure the proper material thickness has been selected for your weight handling needs.
  • If the objects to be placed on the stand top are approaching the recommended weight limit for a particular material thickness, consider upgrading to the next thickness for solid performance, particularly if the stand is large.
  • It is possible to increase the weight handling of the stand without thicker material by ordering a back or front panel, and/or a divider.
  • If one desires more than a utilitarian look, consider upgrading the finish quality to enhanced or better.
  • To help with the design process, you can make a cardboard cutout of the stand to get a visual idea of how things will look.

 

HOW TO ESTIMATE COST

If the basic stand fits your needs, the cost is the price of this listing. If you need customizations that go beyond the basic stand, to estimate cost, you simply add the price of the basic stand and the price of the desired customizations.

Example pricing, if you would like the basic stand to be customized to be 24 front x 12 side x 6 height inches, with the enhanced finish, then the estimated cost will be the basic stand, plus the Up to 24 inch Front, plus the Up to 12 inches Side, plus the Up to 6 inches Height, plus the Enhanced Finish Quality customizations.

  • Work is done to make joinery of top and sides seamless

The standard finish provides a rustic look. The amount of wood imperfections of the rustic knotty style wood can vary depending on the batch of wood obtained from the distributor, sometimes the wood has few imperfections, sometimes many. The knots of the rustic style wood are typically split.

If you do not want untreated knots and crevices, order the enhanced or better finish quality. If you want a refined look, order the refined or smooth finish.

The smooth finish is a multiple layer finish using techniques similar to those found in piano and guitar finishing. It is labor and time intensive and priced accordingly. To keep price reasonable, minor finish imperfections are not treated. The smooth finish will add extra days to the shipping turnaround time.

Example pricing, the refined finish will be $25 plus 15% of the total stand price, including all ordered customizations such as stand size, material thickness, middle shelf, and other.

 

SHIPPING

Shipping price is for within the continental USA.

This is a custom made, made to order item, and created upon demand. There can be up to a 30 day delay before item is shipped. Orders are done in batches, not individually. Current turnaround time is 20-30 days.

Shipping price includes transport costs, shipping box, packing materials, packing labor, and drop off with carrier. Because this is a custom made item with many possible configurations, often custom packing has to be done and custom shipping boxes made. This additional service is included in the shipping price.

In the listing, some of the item price is included in the shipping price so that prices can be simple and easy to calculate. I do not hide shipping costs in the item price like many sellers do. As an individual doing small volume shipping, transport costs are typically 2-4 times more than what large corporations such as Amazon and Walmart pay. Because this is a custom made item with many possible configurations, to keep things simple, the shipping price is an average flatrate based upon previous shipping costs.

When shipping locations are long distance or remote, an additional shipping charge may be added to help cover transport costs.

Shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and APOs is available, but size and weight restrictions apply. Please inquire for more information.

Shipping to international destinations is not available at this time. International buyers typically have item shipped to an international carrier service operating in the USA, such as an ocean freight service, who transports the item to the international destination.

 

PAYMENT

BUYER REVIEWS

  • "Custom Riser Stand - The Best
    I love the Custom Riser Stand I received from Birk's Place. It was made to my exact specifications and looks great. The stand is a high quality product and I think is a steal for the price. In fact, this is the third one I ordered and all have been great. This [seller] was a pleasure to deal with and ALWAYS responded to any questions or concerns I had. I would highly recommend this product from Birk's Place!!!"
     
  • "Strong construction with quality materials & beautiful finish
    Dimensions and features were exactly as per my custom order. Made with solid hard wood as advertised. Beautiful finish! Well worth the cost and short manufacturing wait for a carefully handcrafted custom stand."
