i was putting some photos in photobucket and came across this one i did about a year ago . thought it might be of interest to some of you that do this type work . some of the newer flat screens have the plugs for video , games ect. comeing out the side instead of the back. if you look on the left side of the t v youll see my fix for this . a small panel on each side that is hinged to gain acsess to the plugs and to make the removal of the unit easier if the need arises. hope everyone had a nice thanksgiving !

Very nice Mrtrim! One of these days electronics will all be wireless and us woodworkers can rejoice! Then if we could only get plumbers to go pipeless…hmmmm

miles we can only hope ! why is it plumbers think they can put a 4 in. pipe in a 3 1/2 in. wall ? that seems like a common practice in the building industry today

Beautifull wall unit! You do some really great work Mr. Trim, and a really smart solution to the side jack problem on the television.

Beautiful cabinet,

I have a question, how is this unit ventilated? Those TV’s put out a lot of heat, Especially the Plasmas.

They use about 700 watts,

Another great one from the trim master! I like the way you’ve got the shelf dimensions progressvely changing. It adds a new layer of depth and gives you a nice focal point without taking anything away from the rest of the unit.

This is a great piece, and has a lot of visual interest – which I really like. It looks like your shelves are wrapped on all sides and then put on pins.. is this correct? What did you use for finish? Excellent work.

Nice looking built in. I never have done a painted cabinet. What type of wood do you use? I would guess birch? Thanks for posting.
