This is an entertainment unit I made for myself, we just got a new tv and I couldn’t bear the thought of it having to rest on the old entertainment unit I made years ago… plus I wanted an excuse to make something cool. We ended up wall mounting the tv and hiding the wires in the wall, I decided to make a unit that would be attached to the wall as well for a clean look with no wires showing, the cable box is behind acid etched glass so you don’t see it but the remote works fine. The unit is walnut stained american walnut to match my coffee table. I have some sheets of the walnut veneer I used to make this left over and a week left of Christmas vacation…. I think a couple new end tables are on the way!

I think the “floating” mounts really compliment each other.

Nice work CS. I like the look & the way you hid the wires in the wall is a great idea.
