This unit is about 12 feet long by 7 1/2 feet high the TV sits on a platform that will pull out an adjusted for viewing anywhere in the room. On the top behind a crown molding I ran a 12 foot rope lights for accent lighting, I also put in three pucks lights over the picture that is on a dimmer so you can control the lighting. After I finished the unit the couple could not stand their old fireplace mantel it just did not look right with the new unit so you guessed it I had to make a new mantel to go with the unit, when finished they were happy with everything and that made me happy.

I can see why you had to make a new mantle for them. The lighting above the crown molding adds nice touch to the wall unit.

Nice project.

That is an impressive project. Do you ever do anything small?

That’s pretty sweet! I am sure that makes the room allot better. Are the shelves adjustable? If so did you use a shelf pin jig I am looking to get one and have no clue what is out there? advice from anyone would be appreciated! Once again looks great!
