The legs are actually right at the ends of the TV. I hung mine on the wall, but if I wanted to use the legs, I'd be making 2 pedestals, one for each end.
The TV is about 170 pounds with the legs, so stability and strength are paramount. I tend to over-engineer when I build, but here is how I'd do it:
1. Build 2 pedestals, 18-24" square, at the desired height.
2. Use 4x4 posts at the corners with 2x4" cross-supports notched across the legs and bolted tight, 2 bolts per connection.
3. Top it with 1" plywood.
4. Cover with black fabric.
Now buy/build a cabinet that will fit under the TV and between the pedestals.
