I have made several of these media cabinets. The original was made so that all the components could be hidden from view when not in use. Behind the pocket doors are adjustable shelves . The center back is removable for easy wire management. Dividers inserted in the drawers will allow them to store either cd’s or dvd/s

I think the corner detail of the base is currently my favorite feature on this piece.
Great work overall though.

Darrell: Thanks for posting some of your projects. This is a fantastic looking media center. I love the handles, could you provide somemore info on them.

Hi Karson,
The handles are actually something I borrowed from a James Krenov design – they are not an exact copy of Krenov’s pull but that was certainly my starting point.

Hi Darrell,
I really like this piece and I’m considering making one myself. One thing I would like is to be able to control the media components (Receiver, DVR, DVD/BlueRay & HTPC) with the doors closed. This brings some issues to the design I need to account for: I/R repeaters & Heat are the 2 biggies. I think I can mount the I/R repeater just under the front lip of the top and run the wire through a routed channel to the back of the component bay. Heat is a bigger issue. I’m considering adding two 120cm 12v PC fans directly to openings in the top & bottom of the back panel (one inflow, one outflow) to create some circulation. I’ve found some voltage converters and these I/R controlled power so in effect, I’ll just plug in the cabinet. This should be a fun project that touches both my inner WW and geek.

Hi Jim,
Sounds like an great project ! Can you post photos when you are done – I would be interested to see how you incorporate the fans and repeater.
