This piece was straightforward to assemble, and looks terrific, though there is a couple of places where it is easy to put the wrong part in the wrong place. In particular, I installed the doors on the wrong sides and upside down. This meant the handles were in the right place, but the break in the edge banding is visible on top of the doors when they are open, and I had to drill new holes to hold the metal to which the magnetic door closures stick. (Unfortunately I could not correct the error by removing and re-placing the doors due to the design of the hinge - It springs into place into a hole, which makes it a one-way operation.) That mistake was on me, which is why I gave the unit five stars for being otherwise terrific for the price. Note: One non-standard thing that I did during assembly was to glue everything together with wood glue. It is solid as a rock as a result, but I do not know to what degree that made it better than it otherwise would be.
Input the equation into your calculator. Use the smaller measurement of the two walls as both the A and B measurements. For example, if the smaller measurement is 20 inches, you want to input 20 squared (or 20 x 20) plus 20 squared (or 20 x 20). Once you have the answer (in this case it is 800), find the square root of the number and you will have the size, in inches, your TV must be smaller than in order to fit onto a TV stand (in this case it is about 28 inches).
Measure the front of your television. Unlike picture size, which is determined by measuring on a diagonal (lower left to upper right), the width of the TV is ascertained by measuring from the lower right corner to the lower left. Write this number down.
