Thanks moment.

The lighting is going to be on separate controllers with dimmers so that each shelf can be operated independently.
Should be able to set the mood very nicely.
The client has some awesome geodes to display. Can’t wait to see it finished myself.

Kevin,

This is a very attractive design. What are the three panels on the wall? Will that be 3/4” walnut plywood? We’re looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks L/W,
Yes the back will be 3/4” Walnut ply, but it will be boxed out 4” thick. It’s going to give me room for all the wire raceways and I also am going to use the space to mount my reinforcement bars that will hold up the floating shelves.
Here’s a SU pic.

Very nice project, a rare glimpse for me into how this kind of build can be done. Thanks very much for taking the time to blog it.

Kevin,

That really clarifies your hidden pipe attachment idea. I was a little confused about how it would all be hidden. Great idea! I do hope you have some strong men to help you get it into place though. It looks like it could weigh A LOT! or will you be able to install it in sections? Will the shelves just slide on once the wall panels are in place? Will the wall panels hang on french cleats? Will they actually be three separate panels? (I’m probably too snoopy for my own good and getting ahead of your blog. I’ll stay tuned for the next installment.)

I love built-ins but they can be tricky if any surface is the least bit out of whack. I’m certain you’ll easily master any glitches.

Not too snoopy at all L/W,
I’m actually planning on assembling the whole unit a couple of feet away from the wall. This way I will be able to slide on all the shelves and secure them from the back.
Everything will be assembled except for the crown, (that I will show how when I blog it.)
I plan on attaching the backs to the wall from the top and and below the TV and I’m going to get creative.

There is actually a niche in the wall (behind the TV) that I will be covering, but I’m going to cut out the back where the TV is going and will do all the wire makeup in the niche area, and will have a few more connection points to help attach it to the wall. Were going to put a false back where the TV is going so that we can hang a flat screen flush with the face. I should have showed that in the pictures, sorry.

Very cool Kevin. Some great techniques displayed. I’m interested to see this one come together.
