A Fella I have done a good bit of work for <<the>> asked me to come out and hang some Crown molding.. One day as we sat down for dinner <<lunch>> we got to chatting. He had told me that he had been shopping for a mantle and some sort of cabinet to go in his living room but had trouble finding something tall and wide enough to go around the stone around his fire place.. I told him that I would be more than happy to build them for him and after tossing ideas around and having to convince him that I could do the work (I’m a little younger than some skilled guys) we went to the lumber yard. and I got to “butchering” up some wood…. The corner cabinet’s bottom shelf can be lifted slightly and then the front panel removed to gain access to an area that he has put a PC in, and ran to his Flat Screen.. no hardware is used it’s all bevels and gravity working for us… both of these projects are now finished but my photos only show them after assembly and install… I will upload another of the mantle and of the corner cabinet monday so folks can see them finished… hope yall like them

I added three more photos… The homeowner hasn’t painted them yet but here they are primed and caulked up…

I like it. Did you make and provisions for ventilation of the PC area?

I did.. The volume of the area that houses the PC is about three times greater than the PC itself and I also left a 3”x14” space behind the shelves and the top of the compartment for the PC, for wires and air to pass.. The home owner put a Thermometer in the cabinet for forty eight hours and it never got above 74 degrees,(if my memory serves me well) with the three components running above it at normal daily use.
