I got to work most of the weekend on the television console. Quite a bit of progress despite my sick family and my cough. The only things I have left to do in building the carcase are to: (1) Fit the pieces for the center speaker shelf and install it, (2) Fit the piece for the cable shelf in the rear of the unit and install it, (3) Make the vent for the bottom of the unit and install it, and (4) Drill the holes in the vertical divider to allow wiring to pass from compartment to compartment in the rear of the unit. So, here are some pictures of the progress.
Looking at the rear of the unit:
Notice the 4 inch deep recess behind each one of the front compartments. This will allow me to run lots of wiring and it will never be seen. You can clearly see the holes in the center compartment back panel for passing cords in and out of this compartment. The dividers between each compartment back here will have holes drilled for running the cables between compartments.
Thanks for looking. Hopefully this week I will be able to make the vent that goes in the floor of the center compartment. Since that is not something that you see done every day and since some may be interested in the techniques I have chosen, I will do a deatiled posting when I do that part.
Everyone have a great week,
