Ideas for very small media stand?

Hi folks...I hope someone can help me here. I am looking to build a very, very simple albeit small media stand. I really needs to be only about 12-14 inches wide, and around 24 inches tall, with either 2 or three levels on it. It's mainly to hold a cable box and a small DVD player and that's all. Any suggestions on parts would be appreciated. I'm hoping for a dark wood color, but I could stain unfinished wood if needed.

Take a look in the Ikea nightstand section: you may find just what you need.

Yes, I looked but they are too tall. I'd like it to be shorter.

Kruuth,

Have you thought about hacking an Expedit 2 drawer insert?

Product dimensions are 13"wide X14 5/8"deepX13"high, so it's about the size that you are looking for.

I like, but I need it opened for a cable box and a media center.

Leave the drawer fronts off?

That may work. What about legs?
