Here's another look at the finished stand with the TV on it. I've included pointer arrows to indicate things like the frameless glass doors, the center channel placement, and the storage drawer.
Underneath, there are eight (8) Shepard casters to aid in moving this monster around on the padded berber carpet. The extra wheels are pretty much hidden by the kick skirt, but I think the weight is better distributed than when I had four casters. There's about 3/4" - 7/8" open space between the carpet and the wood.
I think I'm going to get a nice horizontal stainless or aluminum handle for the drawer although I don't really need it. I can pull on the bottom and it glides out nicely. I used 12" full-extention ball-bearing slides so putting manuals, remotes, and other junk in there is easy.
Once I get around to flanking this setup with shelving units, you won't be able to look behind the cabinet, and just for the record, it's 20" deep, 60" wide, and about 21" high. I also want to get a clean power strip for the components, and when I get the back all arranged, maybe I'll take a picture of that too. I bought a wire channel setup that I want to integrate. Oopps... forgot to mention that I did not mount the pegboard back and have left the back of the cabinet open for the time being. My Yamaha RX is a bit deep, and should I replace it, I'll be looking for something that is around 16" deep rather than 19" with a huge 1" thick volume knob!
It's been a fun project and yep... I'll be here to offer any help I can. BTW, _this_ thread has now been officially added to the "most popular" thread list. Says something for all us creative types
