I haven't done that, but there is little doubt that it could be done. Since you have the stability if the metal and the wood is just for cosmetics, you could use 1/4" plywood. Make sure to post some pictures once you're done :thumb:

Another possibility is to mount the wooden panels inside the metal stand. If the stand is the cheap angle iron type, this should be fairly easy. I don't have a pic, but recall seeing one that had the usual black iron with light oak panels in it. Made for a nice contrast, and with the iron on the outside finishing the edges is not an issue. Nor straight cuts, for that matter. :lol:
