Flat screen TV lowboy cabinet plans?

I need help finding plans for a basic lowboy TV cabinet to set a flat screen tv on. Dimensions of about 60" wide, 30" high and 20-30" deep.  This will be my son's first project and he doesn't have many power tools. Thanks for your help.

Walt - Have a look at THIS PLAN it's 62 1/2" wide by 22 1/2" deep and 22 3/4" high, it gives you a source for purchasing the legs if you want to. - Willy

When you say he doesn't have many power tools, what are you limited to?

All he has is a circular saw and a cordless drill.  I'm thinking about doing the sides, doors, etc. at my shop and then ship them to him for assembly and finish.

That'd work, I built a lot of stuff prior to having my table saw with a circ saw.  A good blade and an accurate guide can take you a long way.  My last project required the circ saw and I found after setting up my guide which was no more than a cheap aluminum guide and two clamps, if I put tape over the cut line, there was virtuously zero tear out on big box plywood, pretty good results, and it gives you confidence and practice using the saw when you will no doubt need it at some point in a project that just won't work on a table saw.
