Look, Ma, no cables. This TV stand is made from 3/4 birch ply and painted. Storage room under for tapes, etc. The vertical shelves provide the support. Used my Dewalt track saw to line up the top, back and bottom panels to cut the grooves for the shelves. Worked really well. Nice to be able to hide all the wires, but you can see in the bottom right area of the right bin the hole for cables. Couldn’t enclose that bin holding the dvd player and Roku box because they need to be able to “see” remotes. Anyone figured out a way around this?

looks really good.

for the remote problem you could possibly build a thin frame and face it with fabric. You might have to raise the dvd player an inch or so to make it work.

That’s a very clever TV cabinet and you have done it very well. Nice work, kc.
