I've been thinking about making a entertainment center for my 8 yr old daughter room. Right now the tv is on an old dresser and a flimsy bookcase was supposed to be for DVDs and books but it has became her catch all location . I don't have the best vision in the world so I don't like stepping on things and she leaves things everywhere in her room. Well enough rambling on bout that. What I like to know if I make the bottom of the entertainment center 18 inches wide and it will be 4 foot tall or so and it will be 4 to 6 feet long. Will it be stable and not fall over. It will also be sitting on carpet flooring. The reason it's on 18 inches wide is because of the difficult door ways in my home . One door I'll have to go though at a angle is only 20 1/2 inches. I was either thinking plywood and painting it or staining a color or 3/4 inch pine stained and lacquered. I also thought about maybe putting casters on it but that will be a last thing to think about . I was thinking pocket holes to do some of the joinery. Any suggestions or advice would be helpful with this endeavor if I decide to proceed. Thank you all for reading.
