Built in floor to ceiling bookcases, media center, and mantel, all of cherry. Had to make the louvered vents at the base to allow for flow into the return air ducting that was in the floor for furnace. Subsequent to these pictures I made a return trip and installed doors under TV and lower section of bookcase to the rt. of fireplace but neglected to take my camera. The fireplace and hearth was originally red brick with a simple oak cap mantel, which I covered with a slate wrap.

Second to none! The louvered vents are nice. They would cost a fortune at a retail store. I like the repetition of the wood grain in the backpanel over the TV. Curious- where did you get that much cherry wood?
