Ok I am addicted to the LJ site! When I joined approximately 230 days ago I received a warning in the welcoming comments that this may happen! I have to check-in daily….so many clever ideas and the craftsmanship is amazing! I work at one of the box stores and handout info sheets from LJ’s to interested woodworkers all the time. Now on to the project at hand. I did not want to spend $20 for a plastic channel to hide the wiring from my tv. So I took two pieces of PVC (1 1/4 & 1 1/2), and cut slots in them on the table saw. Mount the smaller one on the wall, slide the other over, paint to match and your done! Total cost: $3

Great improvisation. It has cut your cost substantially. Hope to get more projects from you.

Fantastic money saving idea! We all love that. How did you cut slots on a round object?
