I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post in but it seemed like the most logical fit.

I just bought a Panny 50" plasma for the bedroom but sitting on the stand it's too low for viewing height. The center pedestal is about 17" x 14"

I'm trying to think of an off the shelf box or platform that I could buy that could boost the height of the TV by anywhere from 4-6 inches?

That looks like it would work but it's way too wide. I just want something close to the dimensions of the base (17" x 14")

Like I said, I hardly tried. You could always get three pieces of wood for exactly the dimensions you require and make your own...

Go to the hardware store, and look at what they have there. Ikea is another place to look, if you have one. All that you need, is a drawing of the dimensions, take that to Lowes, Ace Hardware, Menard's, and they can cut a sheet of plywood, or pine board or such for you. Take that home, and paint or stain and put together with some screws. keep in mind, that you will need a drill and some drill bits, so you can put in the screws.

Even better, look and see if you have any mill or cabinet shops in your area, they may have something, or make something for you.

Check the area that has the damaged or missing pieces first, since you can usually find stuff down there to make it work.
