Looks good! Looks like tons of fun!

Don't worry about the adjustable shelves. We have them in every cabinet in our house, and only used the feature the day we moved in after the remodel. Never again have we needed to touch them.

I really debated adjustable shelves for my little rack I just built but it was more trouble than it was worth. I just built to large bays for equipment and the rest for disks.

Again...looks good!

Well done. I'm thinking to go this route since I'm wanting something odd for my room too. I was a woodworker in 4H in high school, but that's been 10 - 15 years now eek.gif

A friend once told me that every home project requires a new tool purchase. I think this is the perfect candidate for that tablesaw wink.gif

Looking good Brian. You have inspired me to build something about 2/3 that size due to a move. Very functional and well thought out, hope to see it after the final stain.

Awesome. Will you raise the TV a bit or you don't mind it being that close to the console?

No it's gonna stay there. The TV is actually higher than I really want it but that's ok. The angle if the pic makes it look closer than it is. It actually has a inch clearance

I'm getting ready to build another sub and think I might use that. What brand is it?
