Hey all, my partner and I are wanting to build an open tv console (as pictured in the drawing), the measurements would be approximate as we will be tiling it after building, my partner and I are very new to this but thought it would be a fun lockdown project.
I am wondering what materials would be best to do this cheaply and efficiently! Any suggestions or help is welcome! Thanks.

Welcome to the Bunnings workshop community @chloedeho. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your question about building a tv console cheaply.
This particular cabinet look is currently very popular. Tiling over the frame is such a unique feature and gives it a very solid look. I suggest using 70 x 35mm MGP10 UT Pine Timber Framing - Linear Metre or similar sized timber for the frame. I recommend CustomWood MDF 2400 x 1200 x 12mm Standard MDF Panel to cover the entire structure. I've placed a diagram below to help you put it together.
Please keep us updated with your progress, we look forward to seeing your tv console once it's complete.
If you need further advice or information, please let us know.
Thank you so much for this!! So helpful! I will be sure to post a picture once it’s finished!
